In compliance with the reporting requirements of the federal Student 
Right to Know Act, the 1994 completion or graduation rate for students 
who entered the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 1990 on 
a full-time basis was 78 percent. 

The commitment of the University to the most fundamental principles 
of academic freedom, equality of opportunity, and human dignity 
requires that decisions involving students and employees be based on 
individual merit and be free from invidious discrimination in all its 
forms. 

It is the policy of the University of Illinois not to engage in discrimi- 
nation or harassment against any person because of race, color, reli- 
gion, sex, national origin, ancestry, age, marital status, disability, 
sexual orientation, unfavorable discharge from the military, or status 
as a disabled veteran or a veteran of the Vietnam era and to comply with 
all federal and state nondiscrimination, equal opportunity and affir- 
mative action laws, orders, and regulations. This nondiscrimination 
policy applies to admissions, employment, access to and treatment in 
each University program and activity. 

Students considering enrollment in Military Science, Naval Sci- 
ence, or Air Force Aerospace Studies courses should be aware that 
University policy prohibits discrimination on the basis of sexual orien- 
tation; students may enroll in these courses regardless of sexual orien- 
tation. Students seeking to enroll in ROTC are not asked to disclose 
their sexual orientation. However, homosexual conduct is grounds for 
disenrollment from the program. 

For additional information on the equal opportunity and affirma- 
tive action policies of the University, please contact on the Urbana- 
Champaign campus: Larine Cowan, Assistant Chancellor and Director 
of Affirmative Action (and Title IX, ADA, and 504 Coordinator), 100A 
Swanlund Administration Building, MC-304, 601 East John Street,

subject to change without notice. Individual departments and units 
should be contacted for further information. Courses, faculty assign- 
ments, prerequisites, graduation or completion requirements, stan- 
dards, tuition and fees, and programs may be changed from time to

The University retains the exclusive right to judge academic profi- 
ciency and may decline to award any degree, certificate, or other 
evidence of successful completion of a program, curriculum, or course 
of instruction based thereupon. While some academic programs de- 
scribed herein are designed for the purposes of qualifying students for 
registration, certification, or licensure in a profession, successful comple- 
tion of any such program in no way assures registration, certification, 
or licensure by an agency other than the University of Illinois.

HOW TO USE THIS CATALOG 



This catalog provides general information about the University of 
Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and detailed information about the 
undergraduate programs of study offered by eight undergraduate 
colleges, the School of Social Work, the Institute of Aviation, and the 
College of Veterinary Medicine, as well as information on graduate 
education offered at the University. Separate catalogs are published 
for the College of Law at Urbana-Champaign and for the University 
of Illinois at Chicago. There is also a separate Courses catalog, which 
gives information about all courses — both undergraduate and gradu- 
ate — that are currently available at the University as possible offer- 
ings. These catalogs are available from the addresses on the inside 
back cover. 

The catalog has four major sections. The first part (pages 1 to 46) 
provides information about student services, research and instruc- 
tional resources, undergraduate admission, student costs, financial 
aid, precollege programs, special opportunities, the grading system 
and other regulations, graduation requirements and honors, Reserve 
Officers' Training Corps, and the Council on Teacher Education. The 
second part (pages 47 to 170) has separate sections for each of the 
undergraduate colleges, the Institute of Aviation, and the College of 
Veterinary Medicine, which detail their curricula, special academic 
programs, specific requirements for graduation, honors programs, 
and other information. 



The graduate programs portion (pages 171 to 235), describes 
requirements and procedures for graduate study and gives detailed 
information about graduate degrees offered at the University. 

Persons who are unfamiliar with the University may find it 
helpful to refer first to the introductory material in the first part for 
general descriptions of the Urbana-Champaign campus. 

The final section of the catalog includes a complete faculty 
listing, appendices, and an index. 

Publications that supplement this catalog, and that are avail- 
able from the Office of Admissions and Records at the address on the 
inside back cover, are theTimetables, which list courses offered each 
term, class meetings times, registration instructions, and tuition and 
fee charges; and the Code on Campus Affairs and Handbook of Policies and 
Regulations Applying to All Students, which contains administrative, 
academic, and conduct regulations. These publications are also avail- 
able on campus at the Turner Student Services Building and at 177 
Henry Administration Building. 

Additional information about the University is available by 
telephoning the campus at (217) 333-1000 and asking the operator for

GENERAL INTRODUCTION 



General Introduction 



Courses and Class Size 



The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign was founded in 1867 
as a state-supported, land-grant institution with a threefold mission of 
teaching, research, and public service. The University has earned a 
reputation as an institution of international stature. It is recognized for 
the high quality of its academic programs and the outstanding facili- 
ties and resources it makes available to students and faculty. Scholars 
and educators rank it among a select group of the world's great 
universities. For more information, see the University's homepage on 
the World Wide Web: http://www.illinois.edu/. 



The Campus 



Located in the adjoining cities of Champaign and Urbana (combined 
population 100,000), approximately 140 miles south of Chicago, the 
University and its surrounding communities offer a cultural and 
recreational environment ideally suited to the work of a major re- 
search institution. 

The University is a residential campus of classrooms, laboratories, 
libraries, residence halls, and recreational and cultural facilities with 
200 major buildings on the central campus of 1,470 acres. Nearby are 
the University's 1,650-acre Willard Airport; Robert Allerton Park, the 
campus's 1,768-acre nature and conference center; and 3,600 acres of 
agricultural land. An additional 3,700 acres of farmland elsewhere in 
Illinois are used by the College of Agricultural, Consumer and Envi- 
ronmental Sciences as experimental fields. 

Nearly every facility on campus is accessible to people with 
physical disabilities, and the University's programs and services for 
people with disabilities have served as models worldwide. 



Colleges and Schools 



Eight undergraduate colleges and one school offer over 150 programs 
of study leading to baccalaureate degrees. They are the Colleges of 
Agricultural, Consumer and Environmental Sciences; Applied Life 
Studies; Commerce and Business Administration; Communications; 
Education; Engineering; Fine and Applied Arts; Liberal Arts and 
Sciences; and the School of Social Work. A certificate program is 
offered by the Institute of Aviation. Postbaccalaureate students study 
in more than 100 fields through the Graduate College and in profes- 
sional programs through the Colleges of Law, Medicine, and Veteri- 
nary Medicine. National surveys consistently rank the University of 
Illinois at Urbana-Champaign among the top ten institutions in many 
fields of study, with several colleges and departments ranked among 
the top five. 



Student Body 



There are approximately 36,500 students and 12,400 faculty and staff 
members in the University community. About 26,700 undergraduates 
(56 percent male, 44 percent female), typically from every state in the 
union and about 100 foreign countries, enroll each year; 92 percent of 
the undergraduates are Illinois residents. Minority students make up 
about 28 percent of the undergraduate enrollment. 

Undergraduate education is strongly emphasized, and admis- 
sions are very competitive. The median ACT composite score of 
entering freshmen is 27, and almost 80 percent of these students 
ranked in the top 20 percent of their high school classes. The majority 
of transfer students enter the University with 3.0 grade-point averages 
(A = 4.0). 

Approximately 125 freshmen are selected annually to join the 
Campus Honors Program as Chancellor's Scholars. The program 
fosters close, collaborative relationships between top students and 
distinguished faculty members through special honors sections, fac- 
ulty mentors, and summer research opportunities. 

Most undergraduate students receive baccalaureate degrees after 
four years, and many go on to advanced study in the humanities, the 
sciences, the social sciences, and various professional fields. Typi- 
cally, over 80 percent of the graduates who apply to law school are 
accepted, well above the national average; 65 percent of those who 
apply are accepted to medical school. 



More than 4,000 courses are available, although some may not be 
offered every semester. About 80 percent of all class sections have 
fewer than thirty students; 46 percent have fewer than twenty. 



Graduate Studies 



The Graduate College is the academic and administrative unit that has 
jurisdiction over all programs leading to advanced degrees. The 
Graduate College develops and safeguards standards of graduate 
work and promotes and assists research by faculty members and 
graduate students in all fields. See also the Graduate College Web site 
at http://www.grad.uiuc.edu/. 

The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign enrolls approxi- 
mately 9,400 graduate students and offers advanced degrees in more 
than 100 fields of study. In addition to the master's and doctoral 
degrees offered in many disciplines, a number of departments offer 
work leading to other graduate degrees. Among these are master's 
and doctoral degrees in professional and performing arts fields and 
various master's degrees in teaching. 

Descriptions of these degrees are given in the appropriate depart- 
mental sections of the Graduate Programs section. More detailed 
descriptions of graduate programs and the requirements for the 
degrees may be obtained from the individual departments. 



Academic Calendar 



The campus has an academic calendar of two sixteen- week semesters 
and a twelve-week summer session. The fall semester begins in early

Arts and Sciences, the National Academy of Sciences, and the Na- 
tional Academy of Engineering. Ten scientists received the National 
Medal of Science while on the faculty. Twenty-six faculty members 
have received the Presidential Young Investigators Award, estab- 
lished by Congress to support research by faculty members near the 
beginning of their academic careers. 

The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign is a leading center 
for graduate education in the nation. A distinguished graduate faculty 
of approximately 2,000 members supervises and guides graduate 
students in research, scholarship, and teaching. 



Cultural Resources 



The University Library has the third largest collection of any academic 
library in the nation after Harvard and Yale, with more than 8.6 
million bound volumes and over 15.9 million total items. The Univer- 
sity Library includes more than thirty-eight departmental libraries 
across campus and in the main library building. See also the Web site, 
http://www.uiuc.edu/libraries_ref_pubs.html. 

The University spends more than $181 million each year on 
research. In recent years, a significant amount of this support has been 
directed toward the creation and development of major centers for 
advanced research and study, including more than $100 million for 
the National Center for Supercomputing Applications. This center has 
established the University as a recognized world leader in the fields of 
supercomputing architecture, design, and applications. In 1985, the 
University was the recipient of the largest single gift ever made by an 
individual to a public university — $40 million from University alum- 
nus Arnold 0. Beckman for the establishment of the Beckman Institute 
for Advanced Science and Technology. In 1989, the University for- 
mally opened the Beckman Institute, where interdisciplinary research 
is conducted on human and artificial intelligence. 

A major center for the arts, the campus attracts dozens of nation- 
ally and internationally renowned artists each year to its widely

facilities. 

Membership in fraternities and sororities is by invitation. Invita- 
tions or bids are issued after formal and/or informal recruitment 
functions. The Greek community is very diverse in the type and size 
of chapters available and, because of this diversity, there are varia-

individual chapters host. For men interested in joining a fraternity, the 
Interfraternity Council offers a concentrated period of rush at the 
beginning of each semester, as well as the opportunity of joining at any 
point in the semester. Individuals interested in Black Greek Council 
chapters need to attend a chapter's informational session to get 
involved in the intake process. For more information, please contact

Research and Instructional Resources 

The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign is a comprehensive 
graduate institution. A distinguished graduate faculty, outstanding 
research facilities, one of the top-ranked libraries in the nation, and 
superior computer facilities make the Urbana-Champaign campus a 
stimulating environment for graduate study and research. 

The following pages describe some of the facilities and resources 
available to graduate students and faculty. The instructional and 
research programs of individual departments and of interdisciplinary 
and other graduate units are described in the Programs of Study 
section of this catalog. 

UNIVERSITY LIBRARY 

The University Library's resources for advanced study and research 
are exceptional. It is the largest public university library in the world, 
with nearly 9 million volumes. Its mission is to acquire, preserve, and 
provide access to the collected knowledge of the world. 

The library system includes the Undergraduate Library and thirty- 
seven other departmental libraries. Among the most important rare 
and special items are world-famous rare book and manuscript collec- 
tions dealing with Milton, Shakespeare, Proust, H.G. Wells, Carl 
Sandburg, the international Olympic movement, John Philip Sousa, 
and the history of science. A pioneer in library automation, the library 
now has one of the largest online public-access catalogs, serving a 
network of more than 2,300 academic, public, special , regional, and 
school libraries in Illinois. It is also a leader in interlibrary loan within 
Illinois, due to a strongly developed, unique statewide resource- 
sharing network. 

The Grainger Engineering Library Information Center, which 
opened to the public in March 1994, is the largest engineering library 
in the country, with more than 250,000 volumes and 3,400 serials. It 
contains a digital imaging and visualization laboratory, and a com- 
puter and multimedia laboratory with more than sixty advanced 
computing workstations. It serves as a research and development site 
for the testbed group of the National Science Foundation Digital 
Library Initiative grant. 

The University Library is the site of the Mortenson Center for 
International Library Programs, which brings librarians and those 
engaged in library-related materials from around the world to learn 
about the library and its activities, and to share knowledge and 
experience with the library staff. The goal is to strengthen ties among 
international libraries as a means to promote freer access to informa- 
tion worldwide. 

COMPUTING AND COMMUNICATIONS SERVICES 
OFFICE 

The Computing and Communications Services Office (CCSO) on the 
Urbana-Champaign campus provides computer accounts and sup- 
port for instructional and research programs as well as for communi- 
cations services throughout the University. CCSO provides services 
to all faculty, staff and students on a variety of servers. These servers 
are interconnected and serve a network of campus computer sites, 
networked workstations, graphics equipment, office desktop sys- 
tems, remote facilities as well as dial-up access from off-campus 
locations. CCSO provides ongoing development and support of a 
campuswide network, called UlUCnet. Currently, all campus offices 
are networked as well as all the dormitories. CCSO is committed to 
upgrading its networks to meet campus research and instructional 
needs. 

Student registration is done via computer and all students get free 
general purpose computer accounts. CCSO works with departments 
that need to provide specialized computer or networking services for 
their discipline. Students engaged in research are eligible for accounts 
on University research machines. The use of computers as part of class 
work across all colleges has increased significantly in the last few 
years, particularly with the advent of the World Wide Web. 

In order to provide easy access to computing resources, CCSO 



maintains computer sites that are open to university faculty, staff and 
students; these sites offer computer systems, software, and printing 
services. CCSO works with faculty, staff, and departments to provide 
software in support of many classes in a wide range of curricula. 
CCSO public sites are located in the Mini Union, Mini Hall, Nevada 
Street, Oregon Street, Undergrad Library, Commerce West, Everitt 
Lab, English Building and Lincoln Hall. CCSO also works with the 
Housing division to provide a common software interface for stu- 
dents using the Housing division computer labs. 

The University owns a vast array of computer resources, including 
personal computers, workstations, servers and supercomputers. This 
equipment is networked by UlUCnet and departmental LANs, which 
deliver basic services-electronic mail, newsgroups, world-wide-web 
access, file transfer, access to remote networks, access to the library 
card catalog, a timely weather report, the online student/staff direc- 
tory, a campus information server and several commercial databases. 
Hardware components based on national standards are used, provid- 
ing a firm basis from which to build a ubiquitous campus network. 

CCSO offers a full complement of computer-related user services 
through a Resource Center currently located in the Digital Computer 
Laboratory, which also houses CCSO offices and server operations. 
User services include consulting on computer systems, software 
packages, network connections, e-mail and other uses of the campus 
network. Consulting is offered on a phone-in or appointment basis. 
Computer training courses and seminars are offered each semester by 
a consortium of training units which includes CCSO staff. The Re- 
source Center is the source for site-licensed software and documenta- 
tion. 

CCSO has developed several outreach projects to deliver quality 
computing services to all sections of the campus community. The 
Office of Computing and Communications for the Social Sciences 
(OCCSS), located in Lincoln Hall, is a joint effort between CCSO and 
the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences to provide support for 
teaching and research in the social sciences. Although focusing on the 
social sciences, this facility and its services are open to the general 
campus community. OCCSS provides statistical consulting, access to 
various data archives, and specialized assistance for members of the 
social sciences or humanities fields. 

CCSO operates a Network Operations Center (NOC) to monitor 
and support the campus network and servers. A Network Design 
Office (NDO) coordinates the upgrade of network building connec- 
tions to the campus network as well as assisting departments with 
local area network designs. Recognizing the distributed nature of 
campus computing, CCSO offers a Computer Consultant Support 
Program to provide training and a forum for collaboration among 
departmental computer support professionals. CCSO also has a Net- 
work Administrator Support group for training and information 
dissemination. 

The University of Illinois continues to be a leader in utilizing 
computers in the educational and research process. 

CIC TRAVELING SCHOLAR PROGRAM 

The Committee on Institutional Cooperation (CIC), a consortium of 
the Big Ten universities and the University of Chicago, established the 
Traveling Scholar Program as part of its effort to increase cooperative 
use of its member institutions' resources. The program enables doc- 
toral-level students to attend other CIC institutions in order to take 
advantage of special course offerings, laboratory facilities, or library 
collections. Visits of traveling scholars are limited to two semesters or 
three quarters. Traveling scholars register and pay regular fees at their 
home universities. Credit earned while in this program is automati- 
cally accepted by the home university.

BECKMAN INSTITUTE FOR ADVANCED SCIENCE AND 
TECHNOLOGY 

The Beckman Institute for Advanced Science and Technology is an 
inter- and multidisciplinary research institute devoted to basic re- 
search in the physical sciences and engineering, and in the life and 
behavioral sciences. Its primary mission is to foster interdisciplinary 
work of the highest quality in an environment that transcends many 
of the limitations inherent in traditional university organizations and 
structures. Research at the Institute focuses on three broadly defined 
themes: biological intelligence, human-computer intelligent interac- 
tion, and molecular and electronic nanostructures. 

The general goal of the biological intelligence area is to develop 
understanding of intelligent systems by studying the diverse ways in 
which neurally-based systems become capable of intelligent behavior. 
Within this area, programs extend from biochemical, molecular, and 
cellular level studies of how neurons work, through integrative and 
computational neuroscience, to cognitive science, which seeks to 
understand how humans process sensory information and represent 
knowledge. 

The general goal of the human-computer intelligent interaction 
area is to improve the ways a human operator interacts with a 
computer by studying not only the input-output techniques, but also 
the human factors. Within this research theme, programs range from 
artificial intelligence, robotics, computer vision, cognitive science, 
and human perception and performance to virtual reality (VR) envi- 
ronment experiments carried out in collaboration with the National 
Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA). 

The general goal of the molecular and electronic nanostructures 
area is to develop new approaches leading to electronic devices. 
Within this research theme, programs range from computational 
electronics, scanning tunneling microscopy (including lithography 
and fabrication of semiconductor nanostructures), and photonics, to 
efforts to synthesize and characterize new materials including self- 
organized syntheses of inorganic, organic and biochemical systems. 

The Beckman Institute has acquired or developed a wide range of 
state-of-the-art resources supporting this research, including chemis- 
try and robotics laboratories; a scanning tunneling microscopy facil- 
ity; human subject study rooms; and specialized laboratories for 
magnetic resonance imaging; scanning force, electron, and confocal 
microscopy; laser spectroscopy; and digital image processing. Insti- 
tute researchers are also able to take advantage of NCSA 
supercomputers as well as facilities located in the Institute, such as the 
CAVE™, a VR theater. 

The building was made possible by a $40 million gift from UIUC 
alumnus Arnold O. Beckman, founder of Beckman Instruments, Inc., 
and his wife Mabel M. Beckman; and a $10 million capital appropria- 
tion from the state of Illinois, which also provides the ongoing oper- 
ating support for the facility. The research programs in the building 
are supported mainly by external funding from the federal govern- 
ment, corporations, and foundations. 

BIOTECHNOLOGY CENTER 

The Biotechnology Center, a special unit of the Graduate College, is an 
organization of more than 1 00 faculty members of the Urbana-Cham- 
paign campus from more than a dozen departments that have active 
research programs spanning a broad range of biotechnology research 



areas. The center supports an expanding industrial-affiliates program 
that promotes interaction between the faculty and scientists in indus- 
trial research settings. 

The Biotechnology Center administers five centralized service 
facilities: the Genetic Engineering Facility, the Immunological Re- 
sources Center, the Flow Cytometry Facility, the Fermentation Facil- 
ity, and the Transgenic Animal Facility. The Genetic Engineering 
Facility synthesizes peptides and DNA oligonucleotides and per- 
forms protein sequencing, DNA sequencing, and amino acid analysis 
for faculty members and for industrial affiliates. The Immunological 
Resource Center generates polyclonal and monoclonal antibody re- 
agents and the Flow Cytometry Facility operates three state-of-the-art 
fluorescence-activated cell sorters. The flow cytometers are available 
to all faculty members and graduate students for use in conjunction 
with their research efforts. A full-time operator is available to run 
samples and to train staff members in the use of these sophisticated 
instruments. The Fermentation Facility is supervised by a trained 
chemical engineer who operates 20-, 30-, and 200-liter fermenters for 
the growth of large quantities of microorganisms. The Transgenic 
Animal Facility, jointly supported with the College of Agricultural, 
Consumer and Environmental Sciences, is available to help faculty 
members test gene constructs in transgenic mice. 

The Biotechnology Center supports interdisciplinary graduate 
courses and workshops in biotechnology depending on the availabil- 
ity of funds. 

MICROELECTRONICS LABORATORY 

The Microelectronics Laboratory building is one of the nation' s largest 
and most sophisticated university-based facilities for ffl-V compound 
semiconductor research. University of Illinois faculty and students 
are using the building's state-of-the-art faculties and equipment to 
conduct research that may ultimately solve many of the problems 
facing the next generation of telecommunications and information- 
processing technology. 

The 50,000 square foot building houses facilities and equipment 
for optoelectronic materials' growth, submicron device patterning 
and fabrication, high-speed optical and electrical measurements, and 
ultra-high-purity semiconductor characterization. Among the high- 
lights of this building are its sixteen class 1 00 and class 1 000 clean room 
laboratories for crystal growth and device processing and fabrication. 
Specific capabilities include molecular beam epitaxy (MBE), metal- 
organic chemical vapor (MOCVD), chemical beam epitaxy (CBE), 
electron and optical lithography, plasma-assisted deposition of ox- 
ides and nitrides, reactive ion etching, and plasma etching. 

The building also houses the Center for Compound Semiconduc- 
tor Microelectronics — one of twenty-four National Science Founda- 
tion Engineering Research Centers nationwide. The CCSM has three 
goals: develop the engineering science and technology base required 
to fabricate low-cost, high-performance optoelectronic integrated 
circuits and apply them in optical interconnect systems; educate 
engineers in this field; and transfer this technology to industry. Eight 
of the CCSM's nineteen research groups reside in the building. 

Funded by the state of Illinois, the $13.5 million building was the 
first university facility in the world to be built in accordance with the 
stringent H6 fire and safety codes applicable to semiconductor labo- 
ratories. 

NATIONAL CENTER FOR SUPERCOMPUTING 
APPLICATIONS 

The National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA) was 
established in February 1985 with a National Science Foundation 
(NSF) grant and opened to the national research community in Janu- 
ary 1986. The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, other 
federal agencies, corporate partners, the University of Illinois, and the 
state of Illinois supply additional funding. 

NSF placed the national centers at major research universities to 
provide fertile ground for the multidisciplinary exchanges needed to 
create new fields in computational science. NCSA supports a variety 
of programs involving national visitors; staff research scientists; UIUC 
adjunct faculty; postdoctoral, graduate, and undergraduate students; 
computer scientists; and computer professionals. 

NCSA does not directly fund research projects, but provides the 
environment in which they can be carried out effectively. The center 
is a training ground for undergraduate and graduate students work-

ing with NCSA staff. Training includes the use of high performance 
computers, workstations, and productivity software for research 
purposes. In addition, NCSA sponsors many educational activities, 
such as seminars and technology demonstrations that are open to the 
entire University community. 

NCSA's plan for meeting the computational requirements of its 
users is constantly reevaluated in response to advances in technology 
as well as changes in federal funding policy. For example, NCSA 
phased out traditional vector processing platforms and moved to 
scalable, shared memory platforms constructed from microproces- 
sors. Scalable computers are modular, upgradeable, and binary com- 
patible from desktop to supercomputer, making them a flexible 
alternative to traditional architectures. NCSA is deploying new scal- 
able machines from leading computer corporations. Allocations on 
the NCSA systems are awarded by peer review. Graduate students 
can gain access through their advisers or through a group that has 
been allocated time on a system. 

NCSA's visualization research and development effort adopts 
new technologies and develops new techniques to serve computa- 
tional science. Virtual reality (VR), the latest step in visualization 
technology, surrounds the user with a synthetic environment that 
emulates reality. NCSA's VR Laboratory provides a resource where 
researchers can explore their data while experimenting with the latest 
equipment. NCSA's VR Laboratory, located in the Beckman Institute, 
includes the CAVE™, a collaborative project between NCSA and the 
University of Illinois at Chicago's Electronic Visualization Laboratory 
(EVL). In the CAVE, a virtual environment is displayed on multiple 
walls of a room using rear-projection monitors. A scaled-down ver- 
sion of the CAVE is the ImmersaDesk™, a drafting table format, VR 
projection-based display. When folded it fits through a standard door; 
when deployed it fills a 6'x8' footprint. The latest addition to NCSA's 
Laboratory is the Infinity Wall™, a creation of EVL, NCSA, and the 
Laboratory for Computational Science and Engineering at the Univer- 
sity of Minnesota. The Wall, which can fill a classroom, consists of four 
screens tiled together in a two-by-two format. The resulting 12'x9' 
image holds as much information as four workstation screens. 

Software packages are supported at NCSA for most branches of 
science and engineering. In addition, the NCSA Software Develop- 
ment Division (SDD) develops software tools for computational scien- 
tists and turns prototypes into products. Its highly successful commu- 
nications package, NCSA Telnet, and its Internet browser, NCSA 
Mosiac™, are used worldwide. The newest software from SDD is 
NCSA Habanero™, an object-sharing framework that lets software 
developers easily transform single-user applications into multi-user, 
shared applications. The Habanero Collaborative Environment lets 
users participate in Habanero-based collaborative sessions easily. 

To learn more about the programs, services, and facilities at the 
center, call (217) 244-0072 or check NCSA's web site, http://

CENTER FOR THE STUDY OF READING 



The Center for the Study of Reading is a multidisciplinary community 
of researchers and scholars who conduct basic and applied research 
and engage in practical programs designed to produce a better under- 
standing of how people learn to read, how they comprehend what 
they read, and how they can be taught to read. The center disseminates 
its work to educators, researchers, and others interested in reading 
research and education through its Technical Reports series and 
through publications such as Becoming a Nation of Readers, 10 Ways to 
Help Your Children Become Better Readers, and Beginning to Read: Think- 
ing and Learning about Print. 

CENTER FOR WRITING STUDIES 



The Center for Writing Studies facilitates research and promotes 
graduate study in the areas of rhetoric, written composition, lan- 
guage, and literacy. For graduate students pursuing M.A. or Ph.D. 
degrees in participating departments, the center offers a program 
leading to a specialization in writing and literacy research. Participat- 
ing departments and programs include the Department of English, 
the Department of Speech Communication, the Division of English as 
an International Language, and the College of Education. Other 
campus units and programs with which faculty members are affili- 
ated are the Beckman Institute, the Center for Advanced Study, the 
Center for the Study of Reading, the Institute for Communications 



Research, the Program for the Study of Cultural Values and Ethics, 
and the Unit for Criticism and Interpretive Theory. 

The work of the center is focused around three principal areas: the 
historical, the theoretical, and the empirical study of writing. Specific 
interests include research in computers and composition studies, 
methods of rhetorical and functional language analysis, cognitive 
processes in message production, the development of language and 
literacy theory and policy, and problems in technical and scientific 
writing. Graduate training in scholarship and research is accompa- 
nied by an equally thorough preparation for teaching. The Center for 
Writing Studies is also home to Computers and Composition, an interna- 
tional journal for teachers of writing, and Language, Learning and the 
Disciplines, a journal on writing across the curriculum. 

Research and Instructional Resources 
within Disciplinary Colleges 

Although the Graduate College has oversight responsibility for gradu- 
ate programs and degrees as well as for a number of research and 
service facilities, each of ten disciplinary colleges at the UIUC campus 
serves as an educational and administrative group composed of 
departments and other units. These are the Colleges of Agricultural, 
Consumer and Environmental Sciences; Applied Life Studies; Com- 
merce and Business Administration; Communications; Education; 
Engineering; Fine and Applied Arts; Law; Liberal Arts and Sciences; 
and Veterinary Medicine. Other disciplinary units outside the col- 
leges include the Institute of Aviation, the Environmental Council, the 
Institute of Labor and Industrial Relations, the Graduate School of 
Library and Information Science, and the School of Social Work. 
Graduate students are an integral part of the research activities 
conducted in all of these units. 

AGR/CULTURAL, CONSUMER AND ENVIRONMENTAL 
SCIENCES 



Within the College of Agricultural, Consumer and Environmental 
Sciences, the Agricultural Experiment Station coordinates the college' s 
research program. Approximately 1 0,000 acres of college-owned farm- 
land in all parts of Illinois are used for research. Approximately 400 
active projects in the Agricultural Experiment Station are being con- 
ducted on campus and at the fifteen research centers throughout the 
state. 

Because agricultural research often involves more than one field of 
study, much of it is conducted in cooperation with other colleges on 
the Urbana-Champaign campus, with the state surveys on campus 
(Geological, Natural History, and Water), with the U.S. Department of 
Agriculture, and with other agricultural colleges. Interdisciplinary 
research is encouraged in such special areas as crop and animal 
production and uses, environmental quality, pest management, the 
International Soybean Program (INTSOY), and food and nutrition. 

Illinois education, agriculture, and agribusiness are in the fore- 
front of world food production and development. In addition to 
course offerings with an international focus, research is conducted 
with the goal of assisting developing countries to expand their own 
food production and distribution. Faculty exchanges and cooperative 
research with foreign institutions and agencies offer opportunities for 
mutually beneficial programs. Examples of international interests 
include soybeans, maize, animal agriculture, and nutrition. 

COMMERCE AND BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION 



Several activities within the College of Commerce and Business 
Administration supplement the research efforts of the departments. 
The Office for Information Management is financed jointly by college 
and University funds as well as corporate donations. The major goals 
of the office are to promote and support incorporation of software and 
hardware information technologies in the delivery of the college's 
curriculum; to equip, maintain, and supervise computer laboratories 
used for student projects; and to support research dependent or 
information systems and technologies. The facilities and the activities 
of the Office for Information Management afford the college ar 
opportunity to expose and train students in state-of-the-art software 
and information systems. 

The Executive-in-Residence Program, Visiting Executives 1 ro 
grams, and the Chief Financial Officer Lecture Series bring visitin;

business executives to the campus to present lectures and lead discus- 
sions with students and faculty on specific topics. The Bureau of 
Economic and Business Research provides and analyzes a variety of 
state and local economic data. The college has acquired several finan- 
cial data files such as the Center for Research on Stock Prices (CRSP) 
and the Standard and Poor's Compustat Tapes. There are also eco- 
nomic data tapes, including those of the Data Resources and Interna- 
tional Monetary Fund. The college is the depository for the Bureau of 
Economic Analysis tapes and diskettes. 

The international orientation of many programs is another impor- 
tant aspect of the college's overall teaching and research program. 
Distinguished faculty members with international academic back- 
grounds have developed a number of special courses with an interna- 
tional focus. The Office of the Director of International Programs in the 
college provides overall assistance in the international field. The 
Center for International Education and Research in Accounting in the 
Department of Accountancy coordinates the research programs of 
distinguished visiting scholars and publishes an international ac- 
counting journal. The college has been involved in several overseas 
programs. Special international programs offered include the Policy 
Economics Program for people from developing countries, the four- 
teen-month Master of Science in Business Administration for Interna- 
tional Managers, the Master of Science in International Accountancy 
with specializations in international accounting and auditing, and the 
Master of Science in Finance with a specialization in International 
Finance. 

The Office of Real Estate Research, funded primarily by the State 
of Illinois Real Estate Research and Education Fund and the Real 
Estate Recovery Fund, undertakes and fosters research related to real 
estate in Illinois, communicates the results of such research to the real 
estate industry, and promotes the ongoing development of real estate 
education. 

Additional research offices have been created in the college: the 
Office of Accounting Research; the Office for Banking Research; the 
Program for Health Economics, Management, and Policy; the Center 
for International Business Education and Research; and the Office of 
Business Innovation and Entrepreneur ship. Each of these offices 
promotes and coordinates research of faculty members in the college 
in these specific areas. In addition, each office provides a focal point 
for the college and its various constituencies to discuss and dissemi- 
nate research results. These offices are funded by a combination of 
government and private-industry support. 

The Survey Research Laboratory is widely used by faculty and 
students interested in survey work. The Behavioral Laboratories are 
used to perform behavioral experiments, and the computer is a major 
tool for hypothesis testing and programming. 

COMMUNICATIONS 

In the College of Communications, the Institute of Communications 
Research, which administers the doctoral program in communica- 
tions and the B.S. in media studies, is one of the oldest and most 
distinguished interdisciplinary research centers in the United States. 
Through its graduates, the institute has spawned many similar pro- 
grams and institutes around the country. It conducts research and 
teaches in virtually all areas of communication but concentrates on 
cultural and media studies, the political economy of communications, 
information technology and policy, feminist and multicultural per- 
spectives, media and politics, sociology of news, media ethics, inter- 
national communications, the effects of mass communication, and the 
psychology and sociology of language. It provides students the op- 
portunity to study and to conduct research with a faculty that com- 
bines such disciplines as political science, sociology, psychology, 
history, and linguistics with the professional fields of telecommunica- 
tions, advertising, broadcasting, and journalism. Holdings in the 
Communications Library in Gregory Hall are widely regarded as 
among the best in the nation. 

EDUCATION 

In addition to research conducted principally within academic de- 
partments, the following units, with specialized research interests, are 
supported by the college: the Bureau of Educational Research, the 
National Center for Research in Vocational Education, and the Sec- 
ondary Transitional Intervention Effectiveness Institute. Most of these 
units offer assistantships or fellowships to qualified doctoral students. 



ENGINEERING 



The College of Engineering was one of the original units of the 
University when it was founded in 1867. Recognized as a major 
international center of research and instructional excellence, the col- 
lege has more than 400 faculty members and an academic support staff 
of 250 professionals. Twenty-six faculty members have been named to 
the National Academy of Engineering, eight to the National Academy 
of Sciences, and nine to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. 
In addition, about 200 distinguished faculty visitors from all over the 
world are in residence on campus at any one time, participating fully 
in the academic life of the college. The college's annual enrollment is 
5,400 undergraduate and 2,000 graduate students. Each year, the 
college awards approximately 1,100 B.S. degrees, 500 M.S. degrees, 
and 200 Ph.D. degrees. 

The mission of the College of Engineering is to meet society' s needs 
through excellence in education, research, and service to the public. 
The educational program strives to instill in students the values, 
vision, and training necessary to develop excellent technical, leader- 
ship, and communication skills. Through class work and extracurricu- 
lar activities, the college promotes a philosophy that emphasizes 
professionalism and embraces lifelong learning. 

The college pioneered an interdisciplinary approach to engineer- 
ing instruction and research that has proven beneficial for the gradu- 
ates of the program and for society. At the undergraduate level, this 
approach is demonstrated by the senior design project, which de- 
mands that the student concurrently apply technical skills, practical 
thinking, and communications and human relations skills. At the 
graduate level, most degrees earned are awarded to students whose 
research is supported within an interdisciplinary team. 

The college recognizes teaching excellence and rewards outstand- 
ing teachers. The coveted Everitt Award for Teaching Excellence is 
given annually to an outstanding faculty member. Many faculty 
members have also received awards for their instructional excellence 
from their departments, the campus, and industry. 

Advising students is a responsibility shared by the entire faculty. 
Each year, the college recognizes the dedication of its top advisers by 
awarding them the prestigious Engineering Council Award for Excel- 
lence in Advising. Because the student body is large, the college has 
developed a strong, well-organized system for advising students. 
Upon entering a department, all undergraduate students are assigned 
to a senior staff member who serves as their faculty adviser. Each 
department also has a senior adviser, who is accessible to the students 
at any time and who acts as a liaison between the department and the 
college. At the college level, deans in the Office of Academic Programs 
help students make academic decisions, set career goals, resolve 
academic and personal concerns, and find suitable career opportuni- 
ties upon graduation. Shortly after being accepted for graduate stud- 
ies, graduate students select their faculty adviser. Graduate students 
are guided through their thesis research and teaching activities by 
faculty members who work closely with them. 

The college's research areas support the fundamental and the 
practical aspects of engineering and science, addressing our society's 
need for solutions to today's problems and for new knowledge upon 
which tomorrow's achievements can be built. With separately bud- 
geted research expenditures of more than $80 million, the college 
places among the top engineering research programs nationally. 

Students at all levels receive practical benefits from the strong 
research environment created by the college's well-funded research 
activities and programs. Students have access to state-of-the-art equip- 
ment in classrooms and laboratories, and they are educated by faculty 
members who are investigating and working with some of today's 
most exciting technology. Many of the research groups offer under- 
graduate students the opportunity to actively participate in research 
projects. 

The college's teaching and research laboratories are up-to-date 
and remain so through a program of continuous renewal. With the 
support and counsel of its industrial sponsors, the college is able to 
maintain many state-of-the-art undergraduate laboratories. Modern 
classroom facilities, many equipped with the latest computer and 
multimedia technology, create a learning environment that enhances 
the educational experience. 

The college has three major interdisciplinary research laboratories: 
the Coordinated Science Laboratory (CSL), the Materials Research 
Laboratory (MRL), and the Microelectronics Laboratory. 

The Coordinated Science Laboratory provides an interdiscipli- 



PROGRAMS OF STUDY 



14 



nary research environment for faculty members and students from 
engineering and other disciplines. Research concentrates on such 
areas as semiconductor physics, semiconductor materials and de- 
vices, computer systems, communications, VLSI circuits, artificial 
intelligence, signal processing, supercomputing, and robotics. 

The Materials Research Laboratory pursues multidisciplinary re- 
search basic to an understanding of the solid state of matter and is one 
of the country's outstanding facilities for electron microscopy and 
microanalysis of materials. The laboratory's three highly interdiscipli- 
nary research programs are supported by the U.S. Department of 
Energy and the National Science Foundation. They are metals and 
ceramics (DOE), solid-state sciences (DOE), and the Science and 
Technology Center for Superconductivity (NSF). 

The Microelectronics Laboratory is a multidisciplinary facility for 
the investigation of new concepts in optical and electronic materials, 
devices, and systems based on gallium arsenide and other compund 
semiconductors. The laboratory includes special facilities for the 
development of artificially structured materials, submicron device 
fabrication, ultrahigh-speed optical and electrical measurements, and 
characterization of ultrahigh-purity semiconductors. 

The Coordinated Science Laboratory and the Materials Research 
Laboratory cooperate in the operation of a multisystem molecular 
beam epitaxy facility called the EpiCenter. All three laboratories 
provide opportunities for researchers in industry and the University 
to collaborate on research projects. 

Some unique research centers are part of the college. These include 
the Air Conditioning and Refrigeration Center, Center for Computa- 
tional Electronics, Center for Reliable and High-Performance Com- 
puting, Center for Supercomputing Research and Development, Insti- 
tute for Competitive Manufacturing, Manufacturing Research Cen- 
ter, Mid-America Earthquake Center, Center for Optical Remote 
Sensing in Atmospheric and Environmental Applications, Center for 
Laser Applications to Micromaching and Joining, and Science and 
Technology Center for Cement-Based Composite Materials. These 
programs address special interdisciplinary needs in nationally impor- 
tant technological areas. They share the common goal of providing 
superior research capabilities in the fundamental engineering sci- 
ences in collaboration with industrial and governmental laboratories, 
supporting graduate student education, and enhancing rapid tech- 
nology transfer from University laboratories to industry and the 
classroom. 

A vast array of computing resources is available to students and 
faculty members. The National Center for Supercomputing Applica- 
tions—developer of the powerful Internet browser, NCSA Mosiac — 
is a University-based supercomputing facility and interdisciplinary 
research center that makes available a range of supercomputer archi- 
tectures. Vector multiprocessors include the four-processor CRAY Y- 
MP/464 and CRAY-2S/4-128 machines and the eight-processor CON- 
VEX C3880. The CONVEX C3880 is the centerpiece of the Numerical 
Laboratory, where scientific visualizations can be performed interac- 
tively in real time. Massively parallel computers are two versions of 
Thinking Machines' Connection Machine, the CM-2 (32,768 proces- 
sors) and the CM-5 (512 SPARC chip-based nodes). At the Beckman 
Institute for Advanced Science and Technology, NCSA's Virtual 
Reality Laboratory allows users to enter a three-dimensional space, 
exploring data by being immersed in it. NCSA collaborates with other 
NSF supercomputer centers to form a National Computational Envi- 
ronment accessible anywhere on the national network. 

The college is part of one of the most advanced campus networks 
in the nation. This network gives faculty members and students access 
to all central computing facilities and to regional and national net- 
works. Shared by all undergraduate and graduate engineering stu- 
dents, the Engineering Workstations Laboratories are equipped with 
some of today's most advanced engineering workstations. 

The state-of-the-art Grainger Engineering Library Information 
Center, completed in 1994, provides students, faculty, and the busi- 
ness community with an excellent environment for study, group 
collaborative projects, and casual reading. The Grainger Center houses 
300,000 volumes of the University's 500,000-volume engineering col- 
lection; the collection is augmented by smaller collections in a number 
of departmental libraries. Its resources include a digital imaging 
laboratory, a computer and multimedia laboratory, instructional ser- 
vices laboratories, an information retrieval research laboratory, and 
high-tech classrooms. Using workstations located throughout the 
University's library system, patrons can access more than five million 
references to articles and journals. 



FINE AND APPLIED ARTS 



The schools and departments in the College of Fine and Applied Arts 
have excellent facilities. These include the Krannert Center for the 
Performing Arts, the Krannert Art Museum, practice rooms, studios, 
laboratories, exhibition spaces, and specialized libraries. 

The Krannert Center for the Performing Arts provides studio 
space for classes in theatre, dance, and music; students participate in 
many of the public performances in its four theatres as well as in other 
theatres on campus. Music students use the rehearsal rooms, studios, 
and auditoriums in Smith Music Hall and in the Music Building. The 
work of students receiving M.F.A. degrees in the School of Art and 
Design is exhibited in the Krannert Art Museum, which is connected 
to the Art and Design Building. Students in the School of Architecture 
exhibit their work in the Temple Buell Architecture Gallery. Design 
and performing arts students and faculty exhibit their work at the I- 
Space, a gallery in the heart of the Chicago gallery district. 

Throughout the year, many visiting artists, performers, and speak- 
ers are brought to the campus by the college and its departments. 
Comprehensive libraries in art and architecture, city planning and 
landscape architecture, and music serve students and faculty. 



LIBERAL ARTS AND SCIENCES 



Among the major resources and facilities for graduate students in the 
College of Liberal Arts and Sciences are libraries, museums, laborato- 
ries, clinical and training f acilities, quantitative services, and interdis- 
ciplinary research efforts. A number of schools and departments in the 
college have superb departmental libraries conveniently located near 
the units. In particular, the libraries in chemistry, life sciences, and 
mathematics are exceptional. Some collections for the humanities and 
social sciences are outstanding, for example, the Slavic collection, the 
Asian Library, and the Map and Geography Library. 

SPECIAL COLLECTIONS 

The Herbarium, administered by the School of Life Sciences, is the 
tenth largest herbarium at an American university. It is both a research 
and a teaching facility, and its staff serves the public by assisting in the 
identification of plants. 

The Museum of Natural History has served graduate students and 
faculty members since the 1870s. A number of special collections, 
including reptiles, amphibians, mammals, and shells from all parts of 
the world, are housed in the museum. Research specimens for ad- 
vanced scientific study number more than 400,000. 

The World Heritage Museum houses more than 25,000 artifacts 
that illustrate cultural achievements from prehistoric Europe; ancient 
Mesopotamia, Egypt, Greece, and Rome; northern Europe; Africa; 
Asia; and America. The museum's collections are heavily used by 
University classes in history, art history, classics, and anthropology 
for general tours and individual research projects. 

Two collections of special note in the humanities are the American 
Center of the International Photographic Archive of Papyri and the 
Cinema Studies Film Archive. 

SPECIAL TRAINING FACILITIES AND RESEARCH CENTERS 

All of the units in the life sciences, the physical sciences, psychology, 
and speech and hearing science have extensive laboratory facilities. 
The Department of Psychology operates the Psychological Services 
Center, which is the principal facility for training and research in 
clinical psychology. The Department of Speech and Hearing Science 
operates three clinics (speech, language, and hearing) to provide 
training for its students. The Department of Astronomy operates two 
observing facilities jointly with other institutions for research and 
training purposes: a one-meter optical telescope at Mt. Laguna in 
California (with San Diego State University), and a six-element milli- 
meter-wavelength radio telescope array at Hat Creek in California 
(with the University of California at Berkeley and the University of 
Maryland). Observing time for students at other sites, including 
national observatories, may also be arranged through faculty super- 
visors. 

The School of Life Sciences, in addition to the facilities of its six 
constituent departments, includes the Center for Biophysics and 
Computational Biology and the Neuroscience Program. Also of par- 
ticular note are the facilities of the School of Chemical Sciences, which 
include molecular spectroscopy, mass spectroscopy, and laser spec- 
troscopy laboratories; a radioisotope laboratory; a computer center; a

ties; and machine, electronic, electrical, and glassblowing shops. 

The Language Learning Laboratory (LLL), in addition to provid- 
ing teaching facilities, promotes research in language learning and 
teaching. Advanced technological resources, including international 
video reception, audio, microcomputers, and television production 
facilities are available for the LLL. 

The Writers' Workshop is a tutorial facility dedicated to the 
improvement of writing on campus at all levels. Administered by the 
Center for Writing Studies, the workshop offers writing assistance 
and advice to students enrolled in any course offered at the University. 
The workshop is staffed entirely by graduate students with expertise 
in writing, and graduate students working on theses and dissertations 
are among its most regular clients. The Center's graduate student 
program offers specialized training in several humanities depart- 
ments. 

The Department of Geography houses three laboratories: the 
Geographic Modeling Systems Laboratory, the Regional Economic 
Applications Laboratory, and the Spatial Data Analysis Laboratory. 
The Department of Anthropology sponsors two cultural resource 
management programs, the Illinois Transportation Archaeology Re- 
search Program and the Public Service Archaeology Program. Addi- 
tional facilities for the social sciences include the Office of Computing 
and Communications for the Social Sciences, the Computational 
Modeling Laboratory, and the Merriam Laboratory for Analytic Po- 
litical Research. 

The Department of Statistics, through the (ISO), provides a 
consulting service to faculty members and graduate students from all 
areas of the University. The service provides assistance in design and 
analysis of various statistical projects. 

INTERDISCIPLINARY PROGRAMS 

Units in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences participate in a 
number of campuswide interdisciplinary efforts, many of which are 
described elsewhere in this catalog. Some of the instructional units in 
the college are by nature interdisciplinary. The area studies centers 
(African Studies, East Asian and Pacific Studies, Latin American and 
Caribbean Studies, and Russian and East European Studies) are 
examples of these; their degree programs are described in the Pro- 
grams of Study section. Other groups of faculty and students working 
together on interdisciplinary studies include the Afro- American Aca- 
demic and Research Program; the Program in Arms Control, Disarma- 
ment, and International Security; the Latino/a Studies Program; the 
Southwest Asia Studies Program; and the Women's Studies Program. 

The Unit for Cinema Studies promotes and coordinates the critical 
and historical study of the cinema. Its membership represents several 
departments and reflects various critical and scholarly interests. The 
unit is also a resource center that promotes cinema teaching and 
scholarship through its growing archive of film materials and its 
editorial and analytical equipment for film study. 

The Unit for Criticism and Interpretive Theory, an interdiscipli- 
nary program drawing upon fifteen humanities and social science 
departments, promotes a broad range of teaching, research, and 
related scholarly activities. For M.A. and Ph.D. degree students in 
participating departments, the unit offers a formal program leading to 
advanced certification in criticism and interpretive theory. 

The Program for the Study of Cultural Values and Ethics is an 
interdisciplinary unit for the advancement of inquiry in the humani- 
ties, social sciences, and arts. The program serves to help faculty 
members support research, develop courses, and conduct conferences 
in areas that relate to the evolution, understanding, and implementa- 
tion of cultural values and ethical systems. UIUC faculty members 
may apply to the institute and be appointed for terms of from one 
semester to three years for interdisciplinary activities relating to the 
study of cultural values and ethics. The program provides several 
research assistantships and fellowships to graduate students who 
wish to pursue research in these areas. Activities of the program also 
include seminars, short courses, and artistic projects. 

VETERINARY MEDICINE 

The graduate programs in the College of Veterinary Medicine empha- 
size research training involving animal health, pharmacology, infec- 
tious and metabolic diseases, pathology, toxicology, zoonotic dis- 
eases, reproductive physiology, public health, neurobiology, biotech- 
nology, comparative medicine, and bone /cartilage studies. The col- 



lege has new, modern clinical and basic sciences facilities for graduate 
study and research ranging from basic biotechnology to applied 
clinical and field studies under controlled confinement and natural 
environmental conditions. Major emphasis is being placed on gradu- 
ate training in biotechnology. Interdisciplinary research is ongoing 
with other colleges on the Urbana-Champaign campus and at the 
Dixon Springs Agricultural Center in southern Illinois. The college's 
association with the Illinois State Department of Agriculture, Depart- 
ment of Public Health, and Department of Conservation provides 
opportunities to use field faculties for appropriate research projects. 

Undergraduate Admission 



REQUIREMENTS AND PROCEDURES 

Since the information in this two-year catalog is subject to change, 
prospective applicants should contact the Office of Admissions and 
Records at the address on the inside back cover for admission require- 
ments and applications for a specific term. A complete listing of fields 
of study and their admission requirements is given in the booklet 
Undergraduate Admissions Information, included with the application 
materials. Illinois high school students may obtain these materials 
from their high school counselors; others should write or call the 
Admissions Office for these materials. 

Admission counselors are available on campus in 177 Henry 
Administration Building* on weekdays, excluding campus holidays, 
from 8:30 a.m. to noon and from 1:00 to 5:00 p.m. Appointments are 
recommended and can be made by calling (217) 333-0302. The Cam- 
pus Visitors Center offers campus tours and informational sessions 
for prospective students and their families. (See Campus Visitors 
Center, page 6.) The Chicago Satellite Office, located at 815 West Van 
Buren in Chicago, also has counselors available for consultation. 
Appointments can be made by calling (312) 996-9158. 



*NOTE: The Office of Admissions and Records expects to move during the fourth 
quarter of 1997 to the following address: 901 West Illinois Street, Urbana, IL 61801. 
Phone numbers published in this catalog for that office will not be affected by the 
move. 

UNDERGRADUATE STUDY OPPORTUNITIES 

An undergraduate applicant to the University of Illinois at Urbana- 
Champaign may choose a field of interest from more than 150 pro- 
grams of study. These programs are referred to throughout this 
catalog as majors, options, or curricula, and are explained in detail in 
the individual college sections found elsewhere in this catalog. 

In addition to the specific degree programs offered by all colleges, 
the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences offers preprofessional educa- 
tion for the fields of advertising, dentistry, journalism law, medical 
dietetics, medical laboratory sciences, medical record administration, 
medicine, occupational therapy, pharmacy, physical therapy, and 
veterinary medicine. 

UNDERGRADUATE ENROLLMENT CONSIDERATIONS 

The number of admissions to each undergraduate college and curricu- 
lum is carefully monitored to ensure that no more students are 
enrolled than the faculty and facilities can support. Each prospective 
student applies for admission to one of the eight undergraduate 
colleges or the Institute of Aviation, and to only one curriculum within 
that college or institute. 

Because admission is highly competitive, each applicant's initial 
choice of college and curriculum is important and should be carefully 
considered in consultation with counselors and parents. Due to the 
great interest in admission to all programs, there usually is not an 
opportunity for a student to ask for reconsideration of admission for 
an alternate program after an initial admission decision has been 
made. 

A prospective student undecided about a major field of study in a 
particular college may wish to consider applying for admission to one 
of the curricula not requiring students to declare degree program 
majors until the end of the sophomore year. These are the unassigned 
curriculum in the College of Commerce and Business Administration, 
the general education curriculum in the College of Education, and the 
general curriculum in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. 



PROGRAMS OF STUDY 



16 



A beginning freshman is required to remain in the college and the 
prescribed freshman program to which he or she has been admitted 
for at least two semesters of full-time study. 

A transfer student is obligated to remain in the college and, 
possibly, the curriculum to which he or she has been admitted for at 
least the first semester of enrollment. A student on campus who 
wishes to transfer to another college must meet the accepting college's 
admission requirements and compete for any available space. Due to 
enrollment controls, transfer to some programs is very competitive. 
For example, the Colleges of Commerce and Business Administration, 
Engineering, and Education will consider only transfer students with 
60 hours of prerequisite course work. 

The opportunity to enroll as a nondegree student is limited in the 
fall and spring semesters, and priority is given to University employ- 
ees and residents of the community who wish to enroll in courses that 
are offered only at the University. There is no restriction on the 
number of nondegree students who may attend the summer session. 

ADMISSION OR RETURN DENIED BECAUSE OF 
MISCONDUCT 

The University reserves the right either to deny admission or return to 
any person because of previous misconduct that may substantially 
affect the interest of the University, or to admit or permit the return of 
such a person on an appropriate disciplinary status. The admission or 
return of such a person will not be approved or denied until his or her 
case has been heard by the appropriate disciplinary committee. This 
applies to persons not now enrolled in the University who might 
apply for admission or wish to return. A favorable action of the 
appropriate disciplinary committee does not abrogate the right of any 
dean or director to deny admission or return on the basis of scholar- 
ship. 

UNDERGRADUATE ADMISSION CATEGORIES 

Applicants for undergraduate admission comprise the several catego- 
ries that are defined in this section. A prospective applicant may then 
refer to the general requirements for admission and to the succeeding 
section most appropriate for his or her situation. 

Beginning Freshman. A beginning freshman applicant is either one 
who applies for admission while attending high school, regardless of 
the amount of college credit earned, or one who has graduated from 
high school but completed fewer than 12 semester hours or 18 quarter 
hours of transferable college classroom credit by the desired term of 
entry. 

Transfer Applicant. A transfer applicant is one who (1 ) has completed 
a minimum of 12 semester or 18 quarter hours of transferable college 
classroom credit by the desired term of entry, and (2) does not meet the 
definition of a beginning freshman or a returning student. 

Returning Student. A returning student is one who has previously 
registered on the campus as an undergraduate degree candidate and 
has not earned a degree. 

Second Bachelor's Degree Applicant. A second bachelor's degree 
applicant is one who has earned a bachelor's degree and wishes to 
continue study for another bachelor's degree. 

Nondegree Applicant. A nondegree applicant is one who wishes to 
take courses for credit, but either does not qualify for a degree 
program or does not intend to earn a degree from the Urbana- 
Champaign campus. 

GENERAL REQUIREMENTS FOR ADMISSION 

The following general University policies are applicable to all under- 
graduate applicants at both the beginning freshman and transfer 
student levels. 

To be eligible for consideration for admission, an applicant must 
meet certain requirements in terms of age, high school graduation, 
high school credits, college preparatory subject requirements, and 
competence in English. 

Age. An applicant must be at least fifteen years of age by the time of 
desired enrollment. 

High School Graduation. An applicant must be a graduate of a 
regionally accredited high school, a school in Illinois recognized by 



the state superintendent of education, or a school elsewhere with a 
rating equivalent to full recognition; graduates of other secondary 
schools and nongraduates of secondary schools may be admitted 
under the provisions for use of the General Educational Development 
Test. 

General Educational Development Test (GED). The achievement of 
satisfactory scores on the General Educational Development Test is 
acceptable in lieu of graduation from an accredited high school. This 
test alone will not fulfill all of the college preparatory subject require- 
ments. 

A standard score of 35 on each of the five tests and an average 
standard score of 45 on all five tests are the minimum scores needed 
to provide the following high school credit: 9 semesters of English, 8 
semesters of social studies, and 7 semesters of general science. This is 
a total of 24 semesters (12 units) of college preparatory subject matter 
and a total of 30 semesters (15 units) of high school credit. To be eligible 
to take these tests, applicants must be at least eighteen years of age or 
have been out of school for at least one year. Additional information 
is available upon request from the Office of Admissions and Records. 

If to be used in lieu of high school graduation, General Educational 
Development Test scores should be sent by the testing center directly 
to the Office of Admissions and Records. 

High School Credits. Applicants for admission to all curricula must 
present a total of at least 15 units of acceptable college preparatory 
schoolwork. Graduates of schools organized as three-year senior high 
schools, including grades ten, eleven, and twelve, must have at least 
12 units in the senior high school. Credit earned prior to grade nine is 
acceptable if the transcript of credit, certified by the senior high school, 
shows the credit as high school credit from grade eight. A unit course 
of study in the secondary school is a course covering an academic year 
and including not less than the equivalent of 120 sixty-minute hours 
of classroom work. Two hours of work requiring little or no prepara- 
tion outside the class are considered as the equivalent to one hour of 
prepared classroom work. Fractional units of the value less than one- 
half are not accepted. Not less than 1 unit of work is accepted in a 
foreign language, elementary algebra, plane geometry, physics, chem- 
istry, or biology. The required 15 units must include the following: 

1 . Four units of English, including studies in language, composition, 
and literature requiring practice in expository writing in all such 
work. Course work should emphasize reading, writing, speaking, and 
listening. 

2. Three or three and one-half units of mathematics, including algebra, 
geometry, and advanced geometry; see the following table for those 
curricula requiring three and one-half units, including trigonometry. 
Applied business mathematics, pre-algebra, and computer courses 
are not acceptable. Algebra completed in grade eight will count as one 
unit of high school algebra. 

3. Two units of laboratory science. Laboratory courses in biology, 
chemistry, or physics are preferred. Laboratory courses in astronomy 
and geology are also acceptable. General science is not acceptable. 

4. Two units of any one foreign language (or completion of the second 
level) is required. 

5. Two units of social studies. History and government are preferred. 
Additional acceptable social studies include anthropology, econom- 
ics, geography, philosophy, political science, psychology, and sociol- 
ogy- 

6. Two additional units of flexible cou rses drawn from any of the above 
five subject categories. Approved art, music, or vocational education 
courses may be counted in the flexible academic units category. 

The subject pattern requirements are waived for transfer appli- 
cants who will have completed 30 or more semester hours of transfer- 
able college credit by the date of enrollment at the Urbana-Champaign 
campus. 

A student who lacks a required high school subject may satisfy the 
requirement at either a community college or elsewhere prior to 
enrollment at the University. This information must be communi- 
cated on the application for admission. One semester in college is the 
equivalent of 2 semesters of high school course work. 

Under extenuating circumstances, a specific subject requirement 
may be waived for otherwise well-qualified applicants. An applicant 
seeking a waiver of the subject pattern requirement should use the 
Background Statement section of the application to state the rationale 
for requesting such action.

GUIDELINES FOR ACCEPTING COLLEGE CREDITS EARNED BY 
HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS 

1 . A college course taken by a high school student at a high school or 
college and applied toward the UIUC high school subject pattern 
requirement (see above) will not be awarded credit at UIUC. 

2. A college course taken by a high school student with a high school 
student population will not be awarded credit at UIUC (see item 4 below 
for possible course credit options). 

3. A transferable college course taken by a high school student at a 
college or university and not applied toward the UIUC high school 
subject pattern requirement may be awarded credit at UIUC and the 
grade may be included in the transfer grade-point average. This 
includes concurrent enrollment course work taken at a college or 
university with a college student population and taught by a college 
faculty member. 

4. College credit can be awarded to high school students by earning 
an acceptable score on: (I ) Advanced Placement ( AP) Program exami- 
nations administered nationally each May; (2) UIUC Departmental 
Proficiency Examinations offered in all University courses normally 
open to freshmen and sophomores; many examinations are offered 
each semester as part of the new student activities. 

Competence in English. A minimum requirement for competence in 
English applies to all University students. Undergraduate applicants 
for admission may satisfy this minimum requirement by certifying 
that one of the following conditions has been fulfilled in a country 
where English is the primary language and in a school in which 
English is the primary language of instruction: 

— Graduation with credit for 3 units, or the equivalent, of English 
from a secondary school; 

— or successful completion of a minimum of two academic years of 
full-time study at the secondary school or collegiate level immediately 
prior to the proposed date of enrollment in the University. 

For an applicant who does not meet one of the above conditions, 
evidence can be provided by achieving a satisfactory score on a test of 
competence in English. The test(s) to be used and the minimum 
score(s) shall be subject to approval by the University Committee on 
Admissions with the advice of the University's Technical Committee 
on Testing. This requirement may be waived upon agreement by the 
director of the Office of Admissions and Records and the dean of the 
college concerned if evidence of competence in English presented by 
the applicant clearly justifies such action. 



A few colleges and curricula have admission requirements in addition 
to the regular academic standards. Instructions on how to fulfill these 
additional requirements are forwarded to students soon after their 
applications are received. The following chart indicates the colleges 
and curricula with additional admission requirements.

PHYSICAL AND MENTAL HEALTH 

New students may be required to present evidence of satisfactory 
physical and mental health to the director of health services. Each 
admitted applicant will receive a Student Health Report form, which 
he or she must use to report proof of immunity to certain vaccine- 
preventable diseases as defined by state law and required by Univer- 
sity regulations, as well as any other pertinent medical data, to the 
director of the McKinley Health Center at Urbana-Champaign. A 
minor (someone under eighteen years of age at the time of registra- 
tion) must submit the Student Health Report form with a parent's or 
guardian's written authorization for the student to receive treatment 
at the McKinley Health Center. A student who fails to return the 
completed Student Health Report form by the date shown on the form 
and who fails to comply by the end of the first term of enrollment is 
prohibited by state law from subsequent enrollment in the University. 
Upon the advice of a McKinley Health Center physician, admission or 
readmission of a student may be denied until the student is cleared by 
the McKinley Health Center. 

Students transferring from the University of Illinois at Chicago 
should request that their Student Health Report forms be transferred 
by the health center on that campus to the McKinley Health Center. 

Military personnel may have their Student Health Report forms 
completed by a military physician. 

TUBERCULOSIS CONTROL 

New and readmitted students are encouraged to present evidence of 
freedom from tuberculosis at the McKinley Health Center. All new 
international students are required to complete a tuberculosis screening at the 
McKinley Health Center before completing registration. 

Final evidence of freedom from tuberculosis is established by 
either a negative tuberculin skin test performed within the last twelve 
months by a health care provider in the United States, or a negative 
tuberculin skin test performed at the McKinley Health Center at 
Urbana-Champaign prior to registration. 

A person who has a positive skin test is required to have a chest X- 
ray. A person with a known history of positive reaction to the tuber- 
culosis skin test will not be retested, but will require a chest X-ray to 
show evidence of freedom from active tuberculosis. An individual 
who has had a chest X-ray performed within the previous twelve 
months will not require an additional chest X-ray if the previous chest 
X-ray is obtainable and meets the University's chest X-ray standards. 
A student with a positive skin test must schedule an appointment in 
the Tuberculosis Screening Clinic at McKinley Health Center to re- 
view his or her health history.

ADMISSION OF BEGINNING FRESHMEN 

Dates for filing complete applications for admission are given in the 
following and other application calendars. Each deadline date applies 
as long as space remains available in the desired curriculum. Any 
applicant claiming exceptional circumstances that justify special con- 
sideration should appeal in writing to the director of admissions and 
records for an extension of filing deadline dates. Only rarely, however, 
are spaces available by these late dates, and applicants are encouraged 
to apply during the periods indicated in the application calendars. 

REQUIREMENTS FOR ADMISSION 

To assist prospective applicants in assessing their opportunities for 
admission, application guidelines based on previous years' admis- 
sion decisions are published annually in the application materials. 
They are guidelines only. Final admission standards depend upon the 
number and qualifications of applicants to each program. 

Admission decisions are based primarily on the following objec- 
tive criteria: (a) the courses taken in high school and (b) a combination 
of high school rank in class and admission test score. Anyone ap- 
proved for admission must have at least a one-in-two (50 percent) 
chance of achieving a 2.0 (C) average for one or more terms of the first 
academic year on the campus. 

If the number of qualified applicants to a college or curriculum 
exceeds the admission quota, those best qualified will be admitted. 
"Best qualified" will be determined by a combination of high school 
rank in class and admission test score. In determining the admission 
of those applicants near the borderline of the competitive applicant 
pool, additional criteria may be considered. These additional factors 
are described in the Background Statement section that follows. 

ADMISSION TEST INFORMATION 

Each beginning freshman applicant, regardless of rank in class or 
length of time out of school, is required to submit an admission test 
score from either the American College Testing (ACT) program or the 
Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) of the College Entrance Examination 
Board. An applicant will not complete the admission requirements 
until the test score is received by the Office of Admissions and Records 
in the form of an official score report sent directly from the testing 
agency concerned. Complete information concerning the test, the 
dates of test administration, and the location of testing centers may be 
obtained from high school counselors or by writing to the appropriate 
testing agency: American College Testing, Box 168, Iowa City, Iowa 
52240, or College Board, 45 Columbus Avenue, New York, New York 
10023-6917. 

A prospective applicant is urged to complete an admission test in 
the spring of his or her junior year in high school. 

BACKGROUND STATEMENT 

Objective academic qualifications will be the major factors considered 
in admission decisions. In addition, the Office of Admissions and 
Records also attempts to identify those applicants whose class ranks 
and admission test scores or transfer grade-point averages may 
underpredict their likelihood of success, and those whose admission 
would add diversify to the educational and social environment of the 
campus. 

AH applicants should complete the Background Statement on the 
application form. The applicant should be aware, however, that 
unless he or she is close to meeting the guidelines published for the 
college to which application is being made, the Background Statement 
may have little impact on the admission decision. 

The additional information you provide might include: 

— interest/ experience in your intended major; 

— Advanced Placement or honors-level classes in high school; 

— state or national recognition for talent, creative ability, leadership, 
or academic achievement; 

— an ethnic or cultural background or an age group that will add 
diversity to this campus; 

— extenuating circumstances that significantly affected an otherwise 
exceptionally good academic record; or 

— any other information you feel would complete your application 
profile. 

A student who attends a highly selective high school for which a 
profile may not be on file with the Office of Admissions and Records 
is urged to have a counselor attach the school profile to the student's 
transcript and to request a review through the Background Statement. 



APPLICATION DOCUMENTS 

An applicant for admission as a freshman must submit the following 
(all credentials presented for admission become the permanent prop- 
erty of the University, are not subsequently released to the student or 
to another individual or institution, and are not held for reconsidera- 
tion of admission to subsequent terms): 

— A completed admission application form. Admission application 
forms are available from high school counselors and from the Office 
of Admissions and Records at the address on the inside back cover. 
High school students should submit applications through their high 
schools. 

— A $40 ($50 for international students) check or money order 
(amount subject to change), payable to the University of Illinois, in 
payment of the nonrefundable application processing fee. The Uni- 
versity is not responsible for cash sent through the mail. 

— An official high school transcript sent directly to the Office of 
Admissions and Records from the high school showing course work 
completed by the applicant, the date of graduation, and the size of the 
graduating class and the applicant's numerical rank. (Since it is the 
policy of the University to accept for admission the academically best 
qualified of applicants competing for limited spaces, the University 
needs an objective measure of the applicant's academic qualification 
that is comparable to measures used by other high schools. Descrip- 
tive statements are generally not comparable from school to school 
and probably will work to the applicant's disadvantage unless accom- 
panied by a numerical class rank. Therefore, high school personnel are 
urged to provide a numerical class ranking. Students from three-year 
senior high schools should request that certification of work taken in 
the ninth grade be included on or with the transcript. Eighth-grade 
work for high school credit also should be included.) 

— An official admission test score report (ACT or SAT) sent directly 
to the Office of Admissions and Records from the testing agency. 

— A transcript of any college-level course work completed by the 
freshman applicant sent directly from the collegiate institution at- 
tended.

ADMISSION OF TRANSFER APPLICANTS 

REQUIREMENTS FOR ADMISSION 

To assist prospective applicants in assessing their opportunities for 
admission, transfer grade-point average guidelines are published in 
the Undergraduate Admissions Information booklet available with appli- 
cation materials each September from the Office of Admissions and 
Records. These are guidelines only, and the final standards will 
depend on the number and qualifications of the applicants to each 
program. 

Admission of a transfer applicant is based on a combination of the 
hours and content of transferable credit and the transfer grade-point 
average. The minimum transfer grade-point average is 2.25 (A= 4.0); 
most curricula require a higher grade-point average. 

If the number of qualified applicants to a college or curriculum 
exceeds the admission quota, those best qualified will be admitted, 
and preference may be given to residents of Illinois. Lower-division 
transfer applicants may be restricted when campus space is limited. 

Additional criteria may be considered in determining the admis- 
sion of those applicants near the borderline of the competitive appli- 
cant pool; these additional factors are described in the Background 
Statement section on page 18. An applicant who has had a significant 
break in the pursuit of an education and can demonstrate an improved 
academic performance, or an applicant for whom relocation from the 
Urbana-Champaign community would present a major hardship, 
may wish to address such a factor in the Background Statement 
section of the application for admission. 

Eligibility of a transfer applicant with fewer than 30 semester 
hours of graded transferable classroom credit is based on (1) high 
school percentile rank and ACT or SAT test score, and (2) grade-point 
average and content of transferable courses attempted. 

TRANSFER STUDENTS FROM THE UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS AT 
CHICAGO 

Undergraduate transfer students between the University of Illinois at 
Chicago and the Urbana-Champaign campus may be admitted to 
undergraduate programs on the other campus for which spaces are 
available for transfers from other colleges and universities, provided 
that they meet the requirements of the desired programs at the other 
campus for admission of on-campus transfers. Generally, admission 
opportunities are better in all curricula if applicants have junior 
standing (60 semester hours or 90 quarter hours). To be ensured 
consideration as intercampus transfers by the Urbana-Champaign 
campus, students currently enrolled at the Chicago campus should 
apply for transfer consideration for the spring term between Septem- 
ber 25 and November 1, and for the summer or fall term between 
February 1 and March 15. 

Applicants to the Urbana-Champaign campus are encouraged to 
go to the Chicago Office of Admissions and Records, where copies of 
official credentials will be enclosed with their application and where 
current enrollment can be verified to permit waiving of the applica- 
tion fee. 

TRANSFER APPLICANTS PREVIOUSLY DROPPED OR PLACED ON 
PROBATION FOR DISCIPLINARY REASONS 

A petition for admission of a transfer student who either is on 
disciplinary probation or has been dropped from another collegiate 
institution for disciplinary reasons must be approved by the appropri- 
ate subcommittee of the Senate Committee on Student Discipline. 

GRADE-POINT AVERAGES 

Grade-point averages are calculated on the basis of all transferable 
courses attempted for which grades are assigned and for which grade- 
point values can be determined. When a course is repeated, the grade- 
point average is computed using both grades and all hours for the 
course. Incomplete grades are accepted as defined by the initiating 
institution. Grades in other course work completed, such as technical 
courses similar in content and level to courses taught at the University 
of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, may be used in the evaluation for 
admission upon request of the college to which a student seeks 
admission. 

Since the grade-point average used to establish admission qualifi- 
cations is based on all transferable course work attempted, applicants 
from institutions with "forgiveness" grading policies (those that may 
delete grades for course work failed and /or repeated) may find their 
opportunities limited to special admission. If the applicants are admit- 
ted and subsequently register, transfer grade-point averages may not 
be recorded on their University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign 



records since the grading policies of the transfer institutions and this 
campus are not comparable. 

ACCEPTANCE OF CREDIT FROM OTHER COLLEGIATE 
INSTITUTIONS 

Credit may be accepted for advanced standing from another accred- 
ited university or college. Accepted credit will be based on evaluation 
of the primary transcript of record of each institution attended. 
Duplicate credit will be counted in the grade-point average but 
excluded from hours earned. A student who has passed a course at the 
University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign may not be given credit 
for the same course taken elsewhere. 

ILLINOIS COLLEGES AND UNIVERSITIES 

As of the publication of this catalog, Illinois colleges and universities 
are developing the Illinois Articulation Initiative (IAI), a statewide 
agreement that allows transfer between institutions of the completed 
IAI General Education Core Curriculum. This agreement is expected 
to begin with freshmen entering Illinois higher education institutions 
in summer 1998. Students who anticipate transferring to UIUC are 
strongly advised to contact their academic advisor and to consult the 
UIUC transfer handbook for additional specific degree requirements 
in the program of their choice. 

TRADITIONAL TRANSFER CREDIT 

Admission of transfer students to the University of Illinois is based 
only on the transfer course work that is similar in nature, content, and 
level to that offered by the University of Illinois. Such courses are 
normally referred to as transfer or college-parallel work. Other course 
work completed, such as technical courses similar in content and level 
to courses taught at the University, will be used in evaluation for 
admission only upon the request of the dean of the college to which the 
student seeks admission. 

Transfer credit, as defined, will be accepted at full value for 
admission purposes on transfer to the University of Illinois at Urbana- 
Champaign if earned at: 

— Colleges and universities that offer degree programs comparable 
to programs offered by the University of Illinois and (1) are members 
of or hold Candidate for Accreditation status from the North Central 
Association of Colleges and Schools or another regional accrediting 
association, or (2) are accredited by another accrediting agency that is 
a member of the Council on Postsecondary Accreditation; or 

— Illinois public community colleges that are neither members of nor 
holders of Candidate for Accreditation status from the North Central 
Association of Colleges and Schools, but that are approved and 
recognized by the Illinois Community College Board (ICCB) for a 
period of time not to exceed five years from the date on which the 
college registers its first class after achieving ICCB recognition. 

Certain colleges and universities do not meet the above specifica- 
tions but have been assigned a status by the University Committee on 
Admissions that permits credit to be accepted on a provisional basis 
for admission purposes on transfer to the University of Illinois at 
Urbana-Champaign. Transfer credit, as defined, from such colleges 
and universities is accepted only on a deferred basis, to be validated 
by satisfactory completion of additional work in residence. Validation 
through satisfactory work in residence may be accomplished by 
earning at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, or another 
fully accredited 1 college or university, at least a 2.0 (A = 4.0) grade- 
point average (higher if prescribed by the curriculum the student 
wishes to enter) in the first 12 to 30 semester (18 to 45 quarter) hours 
completed after transfer. 

Credit transferred from an approved 1 community or junior college 
is limited only by the provision that the student must earn at least 60 
semester or 90 quarter hours required for the degree at the University 
or at any other approved 1 four-year college or university after attain- 
ing junior standing, except that the student must meet the residence 
requirements that apply to all students for a degree from the Univer- 
sity of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. When a school or college within 
the University requires three years of preprofessional college credit 
for admission, at least the last 30 semester or 45 quarter hours must be 
taken in an approved 1 four-year collegiate institution. 



1. Colleges and universities meeting one or more of the specifications as defined. 

In all cases, the precise amount of transfer credit that is applicable 
toward a particular degree will be determined by the University 
college and department concerned. 



PROGRAMS OF STUDY 



20 



NONTRADITIONAL TRANSFER CREDIT 

Acceptance of credit awarded on bases other than collegiate class- 
room experiences will be considered for transfer admission purposes 
as follows: 

Test credit for admission as transfer credit. Students presenting test 
credit awarded elsewhere, or test scores for admission will have that 
credit evaluated against cutoff scores established for those examina- 
tions on the Urbana-Champaign campus. Official score reports should 
be submitted to the Office of Admissions and Records along with the 
application for admission to the University. A student presenting test 
credit as transfer credit may be granted transfer credit if the student (1 ) 
is transferring at least 12 graded classroom semester hours of accept- 
able college-level graded classroom course work from the institution 
or single campus in a multicampus institution that awarded the credit 
by examination; and (2) has successfully completed advanced class- 
room course work at the institution awarding the test credit in a course 
that is acceptable under University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign 
transfer credit policies and that can be considered as a sequential 
continuation of the material covered in the test; or (3) presents raw 
scores for evaluation. 

After admission, students not awarded credit under this policy 
may attempt departmental proficiency examinations to receive credit 
in those areas in which they claim competence. 

Credit for military training. The completion of six months or more of 
continuous active duty in the U.S. armed forces, including basic or 
recruit training, is accepted for advanced standing credit of 4 semester 
hour s of basic military science on presentation of evidence along with 
an honorable discharge or transfer to the reserve component. Candi- 
dates for graduation who are still in military service are entitled to the 
same credit. Credit in military science may also be granted for other 
training completed in the service that is acceptable as the equivalent 
of Reserve Officers' Training Corps (ROTC) courses at the University 
of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Such credit may be used for admis- 
sion purposes. Credit duplicating ROTC credit will not be awarded. 

Credit for education in the armed forces. Proof of military service 
school training may be submitted to compare with UIUC courses for 
transfer. 

Credit earned in academic courses sponsored by noncollegiate 
organizations, such as business, industry, and labor, not recognized 
by the April 1977 Board of Trustees policy statement. Credit earned 
in such courses is not normally accepted. Such credit may be evaluated 
for potential advanced standing in a specific degree program after 
admission and registration; this credit shall be subject to validation by 
proficiency examination or successful completion of advanced course 
work. Hours of this type of credit may be reduced from that shown by 
the originating agency. 

All criteria are subject to the recommendations of the college of 
enrollment and the department that offers similar courses. 

Credit for experiential learning. Experiential learning credit is not 
accepted for transfer admission purposes. A student who believes 
himself or herself to be knowledgeable in a specific course may be 
granted credit through established proficiency procedures by the 
college of enrollment and the department offering a similar course 
after admission and registration. 

APPLICATION DOCUMENTS 

An applicant for admission as a transfer student must submit the 
following (all credentials presented for admission or readmission 
become the permanent property of the University, are not subse- 
quently released to the student or to another individual or institution, 
and are not held for reconsideration of admission to subsequent 
terms): 

— A completed admission application form. Admission application 
forms are available from the Office of Admissions and Records at the 
address on the inside back cover. 

— A $40 ($50 for international students) check or money order 
(amount subject to change), payable to the University of Illinois, in 
payment of the nonrefundable application processing fee. The Uni- 
versity is not responsible for cash sent through the mail. Direct 
transfer applicants from the University of Illinois at Chicago are 
exempt from payment of this fee. 

— An official high school transcript received directly from the high 
school of graduation. 

— Official transcripts of all college work attempted received directly 



from the instirution(s) attended. 

— ACT or SAT test score received directly from the testing company, 
and high school class rank received directly from the high school 
attended. These are required only if the transfer student has less than 
30 semester hours of graded transferable classroom credit at the time 
of submission of the application.

RETURNING STUDENTS 



A student whose authorized enrollment period has not expired needs 
only to enroll for a term in order to return to the Urbana-Champaign 
campus. A returning student must provide an official transcript 
directly to the Office of Admissions and Records from each collegiate 
institution at which course work was attempted since last attendance 
at the Urbana-Champaign campus. Returning students are assigned 
an earliest registration time, after which the student may access the U 
of I Direct course enrollment system to select classes for a term. Earliest 
registration times begin shortly after the midpoint in the semester 
prior to the desired term of enrollment. 

A returning student has the same status as when the student left 
the campus and is authorized to return to the same college and 
curriculum in which the student was last enrolled. If a returning 
undergraduate wishes to change his or her college or curriculum, the 
student must contact the college of desired enrollment. A returning 
graduate student wishing to enroll in a different department must 
contact the new department for approval and then petition the Gradu- 
ate College to authorize the change. 

An encumbered student may enroll for courses but cannot com- 
plete registration until the encumbrance is cleared by the office that 
placed the encumbrance. Notification of student status appears on the 
U of I Direct system. The U of I Direct system displays the earliest 
registration time and date when the authorized enrollment period 
expires. Returning students who have forgotten their network pass- 
word must contact the Office of Admissions and Records to obtain a 
new password. 

A former student returning after the authorized enrollment period 
has expired must contact the dean of the college in which the student 
was last enrolled. The dean of the student's college can extend the 
authorized enrollment period to allow the student additional time to 
complete a degree. Each college has its own rules governing the return 
of students whose authorized enrollment period has expired. 

Returning international students have an advising hold set by the 
Office of International Student Affairs. Returning international stu- 
dents must contact the International Student Affairs Office before 
starting the reentry process. 

APPLICANTS FOR SECOND BACHELOR'S DEGREES 

A second bachelor's degree applicant must meet the same require- 
ments for admission as a transfer applicant for the first degree. In 
addition, the applicant is required to submit a petition indicating the 
reasons for his or her choice of program and campus; this petition 
must be approved by the director of admissions and records and the 
dean of the college concerned. When space in a college or curriculum 
is inadequate, priority will be given to applicants seeking their first 
degrees. 



UNDERGRADUATE ADMISSION 



APPLICANTS FOR ADMISSION AS NONDEGREE 
STUDENTS 

Nondegree admission and enrollment are restricted to participants in 
special programs and to those with nondegree educational objectives 
that cannot be met at another institution. Permanent residents of the 
Champaign-Urbana area are given priority for nondegree admission. 
Nondegree applicants must choose one of two enrollment options: 

Academic Year. Fall and spring semesters, with summers optional. 

Summer Session Attendance Only. Enrollment not allowed for the 
fall or spring term; a separate application for admission is necessary 
to be considered for the academic year enrollment pattern (see page 
22). An applicant holding a bachelor's degree who desires to take any 
300-level course for graduate credit or any 400-level course must 
apply for graduate nondegree status, regardless of the level of other 
courses in which the applicant desires to enroll. A graduate applicant 
should complete the Application for Admission to the Graduate 
College and Application for Graduate Appointment form. 

NONDEGREE STUDENT REGULATIONS 

— Nondegree undergraduate students are assessed tuition at the 
upper-division rate. 

— Enrollment is limited to part-time status (fewer than 12 credit 
hours of course work in any semester). 

— Course enrollment requires the approval of the department offer- 
ing the course and the college of enrollment at the beginning of each 
semester. 

— Nondegree students may not advance enroll in classes or register 
by mail for fall and spring semesters. 

— Registration for the fall or spring term is not permitted until the 
fourth day of classes. The late registration charge will be waived for 
undergraduate nondegree students registering during the fourth and 
fifth days of classes. 

— Registration after the fifth day of classes requires the written 
approval of the dean of the college of enrollment. 

— The college has the privilege of terminating a continuing nondegree 
student's enrollment before the student's registration for any term. 

— The same grading system is applicable to both degree and 
nondegree students. Credit earned on nondegree status will not be 
applicable to a degree except by subsequent admission to degree 
status. 

— To be considered for degree-status enrollment, nondegree-status 
students must reapply for admission. 

— Nondegree students admitted to a college for summer to continue in 
the fall have the option of registering for summer and continuing in the 
fall, or registering initially for fall. 

APPLICATION DOCUMENTS 

An applicant for admission as a nondegree student must submit the 
following (all credentials presented for admission become the perma- 
nent property of the University, are not subsequently released to the 
student or to another individual or institution, and are not held for 
reconsideration of admission to subsequent terms): 

— A completed application form (prospective undergraduate 
nondegree applicants should specifically request the Undergraduate 
Nondegree Admission Application). 

— A $40 ($50 for international students) check or money order 
(amount subject to change), payable to the University of Illinois, in 
payment of the nonrefundable application processing fee. The Uni- 
versity is not responsible for cash sent through the mail. 

— A transcript showing the applicant's highest level of academic 
achievement, if the applicant for the academic year option has no prior 
credit at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. 

— A transcript showing course work completed since last enrollment 
at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, if the applicant has 
prior credit on this campus. 

ADMISSION TO CORRESPONDENCE COURSES 

Correspondence courses are open to any applicant who can meet 
University entrance requirements and who is in good standing at the 
last school attended, and to any person eighteen years of age or older 
whose application is approved by the head of Guided Individual 
Study. 



An application from a student who has been dropped from the 
University of Illinois or any other collegiate institution will be consid- 
ered only upon the recommendation of the authorities of the campus 
or institution from which the student was dropped. 

For further information, write to Guided Individual Study, Uni- 
versity of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Suite 1406, 302 East John 
Street, Champaign, IL 61820. 

ADMISSION TO CLASSES AS A VISITOR 



ENROLLMENT GUIDELINES 

Visitors are not permitted in laboratory, military, kinesiology (other 
than theory), or studio classes. 

A former student not currently registered must obtain the ap- 
proval of the dean of the college in which he or she was last registered. 
Former students are not permitted to attend classes as visitors while 
on dropped status. 

A student enrolled at the Urbana-Champaign campus who desires 
to attend a class as a visitor must obtain the written permission of the 
instructor of the class and the approval of the dean of his or her college. 

A person who has never been a registered student at the Urbana- 
Champaign campus must obtain the required approval from the dean 
of the college in which the course is offered. 

For additional information, contact the Office of Admissions and 
Records at the address on the inside back cover. 

CHARGES 

Persons not registered, or registered for less than a full program (fewer 
than 12 semester hours), are charged a $15 (amount subject to change) 
visitor's fee for each course attended. The fee is waived for persons 
sixty-five years of age or older. 

Persons registered for a full program (12 semester hours or more) 
may visit other courses without additional charges. Students holding 
scholarships, tuition waivers, or staff appointments generally may 
audit University courses without charge. 

ADMISSION OF INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS 

The Office of Admissions and Records determines which students 
shall be classified as foreign (international) according to the following 
definition: A person who is a citizen or permanent resident alien of a 
country or political area other than the United States and has a 
residence outside the United States to which he or she expects to return 
and either is, or proposes to be, a temporary alien in the United States 
for educational purposes is classified as a foreign student. For admis- 
sion purposes, refugees-parolees and conditional entrants are classi- 
fied as foreign and shall meet all requirements for foreign students 
except for the certification of financial resources. 

International undergraduate applicants are urged to submit ad- 
mission applications and supporting documents approximately one 
year prior to the desired term of entry. Competition is extremely keen, 
and late applicants lower their chances for admission. Additional 
information and application materials are available from the Office of

ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS 

Admission is competitive, and preference is given to those applicants 
determined to have the best potential for academic success at the 
University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. The minimum require- 
ments for admission are: 

— Satisfaction of University minimum requirements in terms of age, 
high school graduation, high school courses, and health (see pages 19 
and 20). 

— Satisfaction of any additional requirements for admission (see 
page 19). 

— Satisfaction of the University requirement of competence in En- 
glish (see next section). 

— Adequate financial resources (see Financial Verification Require- 
ment section). 

ENGLISH COMPETENCE REQUIREMENT 

Evidence of English proficiency is required of students who request 
consideration for admission. This evidence is provided by a satisfac- 
tory score on the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL). 
Undergraduate applicants are exempt from this test if they have 



PROGRAMS OF STUDY 



22 



fulfilled one of the following requirements in a country where English 
is the primary language and in a school in which English is the primary 
language of instruction: 

— Graduation with credit for 3 units, or the equivalent, of English; or 

— Successful completion of a minimum of two academic years of full- 
time study at the secondary school or collegiate level immediately 
prior to the proposed date of enrollment in the University. 

The Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) is adminis- 
tered several times each year at many locations throughout the world. 
To make arrangements to take the test, write directly to the TOEFL 
Application Office, P.O. Box 6155, Princeton, NJ 08541-6155, U.S.A., or 
contact the nearest U.S. embassy or consulate, or U.S. Information 
Service office. Applicants who have already taken the test should 
request that the TOEFL office send their scores to the Office of 
Admissions and Records. For admission purposes, TOEFL scores are 
valid for only two years prior to the proposed term of entry. If the 
TOEFL score is acceptable but indicates the need for further English 
study, a placement test will be required upon arrival at the University. 
On the basis of the placement test scores, students may be required to 
enroll in noncredit English courses and to take a reduced academic 
load. 

In cases in which TOEFL testing dates are not available prior to the 
desired term of entry, the University will arrange for substitution of 
the Michigan English Language Assessment Battery (MELAB) test 
given by the English Language Institute Testing and Certification 
Division of the University of Michigan. Complete instructions to 
arrange for the MELAB examination will be provided by the Office of 
Admissions and Records to each applicant for whom the test is 
required. Final admission status is determined after the test results 
have been received. 

The current minimum cutoff scores are 550 on the TOEFL and 83 
on the MELAB. The English requirement for graduation is explained 
on page 41. 

FINANCIAL VERIFICATION REQUIREMENT 

In order to qualify for a Certificate of Visa Eligibility (Form 1-20 or I AP- 
66), a foreign (international) applicant must submit complete and 
accurate information regarding his or her source of financial support. 
This information is in compliance with regulations of the U.S. Immi- 
gration and Naturalization Service. Current information and certifica- 
tion also are required of foreign applicants transferring from institu- 
tions within the United States. Financial resources must be docu- 
mented for the entire length of time required to earn a degree. 
Expenses for the 1995-96 academic year were estimated at $20,626, 
excluding summer session tuition and fees. This figure is subject to 
increase without notice and is presented here for planning purposes. 
Current estimated expenses may be obtained by writing to the Office 
of Admissions and Records. 

Prospective students who cannot document the availability of 
sufficient resources will be denied admission. 

University financial aid funds are extremely limited and are avail- 
able only to participants in specific exchange programs. Individual 
requests for financial aid cannot be considered. 

APPLICATION DOCUMENTS 

An international applicant for admission must submit the following 
(all credentials presented for admission or readmission become the 
permanent property of the University and are not subsequently 
released to the student or to another individual or institution): 

— An Application for Undergraduate Admission for Applicants 
from Other Countries. 

— A $40 (U.S.) nonrefundable application processing fee (amount 
subject to change) in the form of a check or money order payable to the 
University of Illinois. The University is not responsible for cash sent 
through the mail. The check must indicate that the bank has an 
affiliated bank in the United States. 

— Official records for the last four years of secondary school study 
and /or any postsecondary or university-level work completed or 
attempted. 

All records must list subjects taken, grades earned, or examination 
results (including those passed or failed in each subject); and all 
diplomas and certificates awarded. Official translations must accom- 
pany these records if they are in a language other than English. All 
credentials must be certified by an officer of the educational institu- 



tion attended or by the U.S. embassy or consulate. An applicant 
attending a U.S. or Canadian school should have credentials submit- 
ted directly by the school. Notarized copies of credentials do not fulfill 
official document requirements. 

A list of all courses in progress, including recently completed 
course work that is not listed on the transcript, must also be included 
on the application. When possible, an applicant must have a school 
official provide a statement of the applicant's rank in class. This 
statement should indicate the applicant's performance relative to the 
performance of other members of the secondary or postsecondary 
school class. Applicants to some fields may be required to submit 
additional materials, such as background information and aptitude 
test results, or to participate in auditions. These items will be re- 
quested by the Office of Admissions and Records when needed and 
will be required only for applicants satisfying all other admission 
criteria. 

— The results of the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL), 
or the Michigan English Language Assessment Battery (MELAB) test, 
if required, as indicated above. 

— Declaration and certification of finances as required of all interna- 
tional applicants.

ADMISSION OF SUMMER SESSION NONDEGREE STUDENTS 

Approval of admission or return as a nondegree student to the 
summer session only does not allow enrollment in the fall or spring. 
A student who was admitted to the summer session only as a nondegree 
student and who later wishes to enter one of the colleges of the 
University as a degree or nondegree student must apply for admission 
in the usual manner and satisfy requirements in effect at the time of 
application. A person admitted as a nondegree undergraduate stu- 
dent to the summer session only is not assigned to any college or 
curriculum. 

Undergraduate nondegree applications for admission to the sum- 
mer session only may be approved by the director of the Office of 
Admissions and Records under the following conditions: 

— High school graduates who qualified for admission under mini- 
mum rank and test score combination requirements, but who were not 
admitted under competitive rank and test score combination require- 
ments in effect for the fall semester, may be admitted as nondegree 
students for the summer session only. (These minimum rank and test 
score requirements, known as campus minimums, are available from 
the Office of Admissions and Records the September preceding the 
summer term for which admission is sought.) 

— Former University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign students who 
have not graduated from the University may be admitted as nondegree 
candidates if approved by the director of the Office of Admissions and 
Records through release from their former colleges. Students on drop 
or probationary status must petition the Summer Session Office for 
admission as nondegree candidates. If approved, they will be admit- 
ted on probation for that single summer session only. 

— An undergraduate student enrolled in another institution may 
enroll in the summer session as a nondegree candidate if the student 
is eligible to return to the collegiate institution last attended. 

— Any person eighteen years of age or older who has never attended 
a collegiate institution, but who gives evidence that he or she pos- 
sesses the requisite background and ability to pursue profitably 
courses for which he or she is qualified, may enroll in the summer 
session as a nondegree candidate. 

APPLICATION DOCUMENTS 

An applicant for admission to summer session as a nondegree student 
must submit the following (all credentials presented for admission or 
readmission become the permanent property of the University, are 
not subsequently released to the student or to another individual or 
institution, and are not held for reconsideration of admission to 
subsequent terms): 

— A completed admission application form. This form is available 

from the Office of Admissions and Records at the address on the inside 

back cover. 

— A $30 ($40 for international students) check or money order (amount 

subject to change) payable to the University of Illinois, in payment of 

the nonrefundable application processing fee. The University is not

— Additional documents required of certain applicants, as follows: 

A high school graduate (see first category under Admission of 
Summer Session Nondegree Students, above) may be required to 
submit (1) an official high school transcript received from the high 
school showing rank in graduating class, and (2) an official report of 
the admission test score (ACT or SAT) sent directly to the Office of 
Admissions and Records from the testing agency concerned. 

A teacher may be requested to submit a statement verifying his or 
her employment. 

A student enrolled at another collegiate institution may be re- 
quested to submit a statement of eligibility to return to the institution

REGISTRATION AGREEMENT 

U of I Direct is the system that allows students to register for courses 
by computer. Students who register for courses agree to pay tuition 
and fees to the University according to the payment policies and 
schedules adopted by the Board of Trustees. If a student wishes to 
cancel registration, and thus avoid payment of tuition and fee charges, 
the student must do so by 5:00 p.m. of the first day of instruction. 

Unauthorized use of University of Illinois computerized systems, 
data, or resources; unauthorized use of another individual's identifi- 
cation, account, of password; or an attempt to gain unauthorized 
access is prohibited by University policy and may constitute a viola- 
tion of Illinois state law. 

TUITION AND FEES 

Tuition and fees for undergraduate students who were enrolled on 
campus in fall 1996 are shown in the 1996-97 Semester Tuition and Fee 
Schedule, page 26. Charges are assessed on the basis of the student's 
college (undergraduate, graduate, or professional) and in some cases, 
curriculum of enrollment; classification as resident or nonresident of 
Illinois; and credit range as determined by the total number of semes- 
ter hours or graduate units for which the student is registered. 

Undergraduate credit is counted in semester hours. Credit for 
graduate work is counted in units. For fee assessment purposes, 1 unit 
equals 4 semester hours. A full-time student is one who is registered 
for 12 or more semester hours of credit, or 3 or more units. 

The Service Fee supports operation of certain campus facilities 
such as the Illini Union, Turner Student Services Building, Assembly 
Hall, and the Intramural Physical Education Building. The Health 
Insurance Fee covers the cost of the University Student Health Insur- 
ance Program that provides worldwide hospital, medical, and surgi- 
cal insurance coverage. The Health Service Fee provides health care 
and limited prescription service at the campus McKinley Health

Center and helps support the Counseling Center. The General Fee 
supports certain fixed costs of campus fee-supported buildings such 
as the Assembly Hall and the Illini Union. The Transportation Fee 
finances a campus and community transportation plan for students. 
Students are also assessed: 

— $4 each semester for SEAL (Students for Equal Access to Learning) 
to supplement existing financial aid for needy students. A refund is 
available upon request during the seventh week of instruction in a 
semester for students not desiring to participate. 

— $7 each semester and summer session for SORF (Student Organi- 
zation Resource Fee) to help support the Student Legal Service and the 
programs and services of registered student organizations. Refunds 
are available upon request during the sixth week of instruction in a 
semester and summer session. 

— SI (collected only in the fall) to support the student government 
association (SGA). 

— $5 each semester and $3 for summer term 2 to support productions 
at the Krannert Center for the Performing Arts (KCPA). Refunds are 
available upon request during the fifth week of instruction for fall and 
spring. No refunds are available during the summer session. 

Students enrolling at less than one-half time (less than 6 hours or 
V/2 units) are not assessed the service fee; the McKinley Health 
Center fee; the transportation fee; the KCPA fee; or the SEAL, SORF, 
or SGA fee and are not eligible to use the services supported by these 
fees. Such students may elect to purchase one or more of the services 
directly from the provider. 

LATE REGISTRATION 

Students who register after the first day of instruction in any semester, 
including University staff and persons who submitted admission 
applications too late to be processed before the first day of instruction, 
must pay a Late Registration Fine of $15 (amount subject to change). 
(This fine is not covered by scholarships or tuition waivers. It may be 
waived under exceptional circumstances upon petition to the director 
of the Office of Admissions and Records. The petition form is available 
from the Registration Services Office, Window 25, 100 Henry Admin- 
istration Building.*)

RESIDENCE CLASSIFICATION FOR ADMISSION AND 
TUITION ASSESSMENT 

The residence classification of applicants for admission is determined 
on the basis of the information given on their applications and other 
credentials. Eligibility for admission to the University is determined 
and tuition is assessed in accordance with this decision. 

Persons who take exception to the residence status assigned to 
them should refer to Appendix B. 



Tuition and fees assessed for any semester, term, or summer session 
are due and payable in full by the deadline indicated on the Registra- 
tion Statement of Charges and Aid. The privilege of paying these 
charges by installment may be granted by the Office of Student 
Accounts and Cashiers (see next section). Students who do not make 
full or first installment payment by the scheduled due date shown on 
the statement will be assessed a $25 (amount subject to change) charge 
for late registration payment, which will be billed to their student 
accounts. 

A delinquent service charge of 1 .5 percent per month, or $2 per 
month, whichever is greater, is added to delinquent student accounts. 
The delinquent service charge is applied to all items charged to the 
student account and for which payment is delinquent. 

INSTALLMENT PLAN FOR PAYING TUITION, FEES, AND 
HOUSING CHARGES 

Students enrolled on campus may pay tuition and fees, single-student 
residence hall charges, and flight instruction fees on an installment 
plan. This plan is not available to students registered in extramural, 
correspondence, and four-week summer term courses, or to students 
for whom this privilege has been denied. 

Under the installment plan, semester charges are collected in three 
installments. The first is payable during the first ten days of instruc- 
tion, and the remaining ones are payable in each of the two following 
months. Approximately one-half of the summer term 2 charges must 
be paid during the first seven days of instruction with the remainder 
due during the following month. There is a finance charge of 1 percent 
of the total amount deferred, or $2, whichever is greater, when charges 
are paid in installments (amount subject to change). 

Students who pay their accounts on the installment plan and later 
withdraw from the University, or reduce their registration to a lower 
credit range after the established refund deadline date, are liable for 
the full amount of tuition and fees assessed. 

Installment payments are delinquent on the first day of the month 
after the date that payment is due. A delinquent service charge of 1.5 
percent per month, or $2 per month, whichever is greater, is added to 
delinquent accounts (amount subject to change). The delinquent 
service charge is applied to all items charged to the student account 
and for which payment is delinquent. 

Students who are in debt to the University at the end of any 
academic term may not be permitted to register in the University 
again. They are not entitled to receive diplomas or official statements 
or transcripts of credits until either the indebtedness has been paid or 
suitable arrangements for payment have been made, unless either 
there is a pending bankruptcy petition of the student seeking a 
discharge of all such indebtedness or all such indebtedness has been 
discharged. 

REFUNDS 



CANCELLATION OF REGISTRATION 

Individuals who have placed courses on their record prior to the 
beginning of the term and later decide not to attend the University 
may cancel their registration by 5:00 p.m. of the first day of instruction 
for the term and avoid all tuition and fee charges. Individuals who are 
ineligible to continue in the University for actions initiated by the 
University based on academic, disciplinary, or medical reasons before 
5:00 p.m. on the first day of instruction for the term have their 
registrations become void and are not entitled to student privileges. 

If a written request to cancel registration is received in the Office 
of Admissions and Records by 5:00 p.m. on the first day of instruction, 
a student's registration agreement will be cancelled and tuition and 
fees will not be charged. 

Students may not cancel their registration once they have used fee- 
supported services. If they leave the University, they must officially 
withdraw from the University 

WITHDRAWAL FROM THE UNIVERSITY 

Students who have been charged tuition and/or fees and later with- 
draw from the University prior to the completion of 60 percent of the 
term receive a refund on a pro rata basis. Assessed tuition, the service 
fee, the general fee, and the transportation fee are refunded on a pro 
rata basis less 5 percent of the assessed amount or $100, whichever is 



STUDENT COSTS 



25 



less. The health insurance and health services fees are nonrefundable. 
Students continue to be covered by health insurance and are eligible 
to receive health services (if these fees were paid) until the first day of 
instruction for the following term. 

Before a refund is made to a student, the University must make a 
refund to appropriate financial aid programs providing assistance to 
the student. A student indebted to the University at the time of 
withdrawal will have the amount owed deducted from the amount of 
any refund available. 

Students permitted to pay tuition and fees on the installment plan, 
or who make no payment at all, and then withdraw from the Univer- 
sity, are liable for the full amount of tuition and fees originally 
assessed less applicable refunds. 

Special refund policies apply to those who withdraw to enter 
either active duty in the armed forces or other approved national 
defense service. 

In case of extenuating circumstances, such as medically docu- 
mented serious illness or injury, exception to these refund periods 
may be made by the director of the Office of Admissions and Records. 
The petition form to request a refund is available at Window 25, 100 
Henry Administration Building.* 



The Office of Admissions and Records expects to move during the fourth quarter of 
1997 to the following address: 901 West Illinois Street, Urbana, IL 61801. Phone 
numbers published in this catalog for that office will not be affected by the move. 

REDUCTION OF PROGRAM 

Students who paid tuition and /or fees and later reduce their registra- 
tion to a lower credit range, as indicated on page 26, receive full refund 
of the difference in tuition and fees specified for the ranges if the 
change is made during the periods listed below. Thereafter, no refund 
is allowed. 

• In a semester, twelve-week term, or eleven-week summer law 
program, full refund, except for the nonrefundable charge, during the 
first ten days of instruction; no refund thereafter; 

• In an eight-week summer term, full refund, except for the nonre- 
fundable charge, during the first seven days of instruction; no refund 
thereafter; and 

• For University terms of different lengths, refund periods are deter- 
mined proportionately in accordance with the above principles. 

EXEMPTIONS AND WAIVERS OF TUITION AND FEES' 

Appearing below are the waivers and exemptions available to stu- 
dents and the conditions under which they are granted. 

Recipients of waivers have had the amount for the service actually 
assessed and then waived by University policy. Such recipients are 
therefore eligible to receive the benefits of the service provided by the 
charge. 

An exemption carries no original charge, so recipients are not 
eligible to receive the benefits of the services provided by the charge. 
Students exempt from any particular charge may make individual 
arrangements with the service provider; such arrangements are sub- 
ject to the policies of the individual provider. 

Unless otherwise exempted by Board of Trustees authorization, 
the payment of tuition and fees is required of academic employees of 
the University or allied agencies under appointment for less than 25 
percent of full-time service, and of staff employees under appoint- 
ment for less than 50 percent of full-time service. 

For tuition and fees assessment purposes, an appointment must be 
to an established position for a specific amount of time and a salary 
commensurate with the percentage of time required, and it must 
require service for not less than three-fourths of the academic term. 
Note: A term is defined as running from the first day of instruction 
through the last day of final examinations. Three-fourths of a term is 
defined as ninety-one calendar days in a semester and forty-one 
calendar days during the eight-week summer term. Tuition and fees 
privileges do not apply to students employed on an hourly basis in 
either an academic or staff capacity, or to persons on leave without 
pay. 



1 . For the purpose of this section, the four employment categories at this campus are 
defined as follows: 

FacH/fy.The faculty includes (1 ) those in the professorial ranks (i.e., professor, associate 
professor, assistant professor); (2) instructors and lecturers; and (3) teaching, research, 
and clinical associates. Various prefixes may be used in conjunction with these ranks, 
such as adjunct, clinical, visiting, or research. 



Academic Professional (Academic): Academic professionals are those employees whose 

positions have been designated by the president and the chancellor as meeting 

specialized administrative, professional, or technical needs. Academic professional 

employees receive an academic contract issued by the Board of Trustees for a term 

appointment. They are accorded the rights and privileges pertaining to other academic 

personnel except those that apply specifically to academic employees with faculty 

rank, such as eligibility for tenure. 

Graduate Student Assistant: Graduates student assistants include teaching, research, 

and clinical assistants. 

Staff: Staff employees are those members of the University work force subject to the 

rules of the State Universities Civil Service System. 

University employees appointed to established civil service posi- 
tions whose rates of pay are determined by negotiation, prevailing 
rates, and union affiliation are not considered as paid on an hourly 
basis and are entitled to the same tuition and fees privileges accorded 
to other staff members under the regulations. 

A student who resigns an appointment, or whose appointment is 
cancelled before rendering service for at least three-fourths of the 
term, becomes subject to the full amount of the appropriate tuition and 
fees for that term unless the student withdraws from University 
classes at the same time or before the appointment becomes void, or 
the student has submitted a final thesis within one week after the 
resignation date. 

Students holding appointments — as academic employees, gradu- 
ate assistants, or fellows — to the close of the second semester, for 
whom tuition and /or the Service Fee have been provided by exemp- 
tion or waiver, are entitled to the same exemption of tuition and / or the 
Service Fee for the summer term 2 immediately following, providing 
they hold no appointments during the summer. 

Tuition and fee waivers are not granted for the Executive M.B.A. 
Program or other self-supporting programs. 

APPLICATION FEE 

Applicants for admission must submit a $30 ($40 for international 
applicants) application fee (amount subject to change) to help defray 
processing costs. The fee is nonrefundable to applicants approved for 
admission and to denied applicants who submit complete or partial 
applications prior to the date all admission spaces are filled in the 
college and curriculum of their choice. Application fees will be re- 
turned to persons applying for admission to curricula that were closed 
to further admission or to programs not being offered. 
Exempt from payment of the application fee are: 

— Faculty and academic professional employees. 

— University of Illinois faculty, academic, and staff retirees. 

— Permanent staff employees of the University and other institutions 
and agencies under the University Civil Service System who have 
been assigned to established permanent and continuous staff posi- 
tions and who are employed for at least 50 percent of full time. 

— Employees of certain specifically identified related agencies who 
are authorized tuition and /or Service Fee waivers.

hardship is a family income at or below the low standard family 
budget of the Bureau of Labor Statistics or the receipt of a testing 
waiver from the American College Testing Program of the College 
Entrance Examination Board. Applicants currently attending another 
collegiate institution may provide evidence of the financial package 
received at the institution. 

— Applicants under approved foreign exchange programs in which 
the University participates, such as the Latin American Scholarship 
Program of American Universities and the African Scholarship Pro- 
gram of American Universities, and foreign students participating in 
approved exchange programs in which the waiver of fees is reciprocal. 

— Intercampus transfers at the same level: undergraduate to under- 
graduate, or graduate to graduate. 

— Applicants requesting a change in admission consideration from 
one campus of the University of Illinois to another for the same level 
and term. This would include applicants denied admission on one 
campus as well as applicants wishing to cancel admission or admission

— Students from other universities participating in the Committee 
on Institutional Cooperation (CIC) Program by taking courses at the 
University of Illinois. 

— Persons who are applying for CIC-supported fellowships to study 
at a CIC member institution. 

— Graduate and professional applicants whose entry is advanced or 
delayed by action of their major departments are not required to pay 
a second application fee. 

— University of Illinois students applying for work on a second 
campus as concurrent registrants, non-University of Illinois students 
applying as concurrent registrants from another institution with 
which the University has a reciprocal agreement, and students who 
have been concurrent enrollees the immediately preceding term and 
who plan to return to their primary campuses the following term. 

— Cooperating teachers and administrators who receive assignment 
of practice teachers, who receive assignment of students meeting the 
clinical experience requirement in teacher education, or who cooper- 
ate in research projects related to teacher education, cooperating 
librarians, school-nurse teachers, social welfare field supervisors, 
recreation field supervisors, health-education field supervisors, speech 
pathology supervisors, developmental child care field supervisors, 
educational psychology supervisors, continuing education supervi- 
sors, industrial relations field supervisors, and physicians participat- 
ing without salary in the instructional program of the University of 
Illinois College of Medicine at Urbana-Champaign. 

— Students on leave-of-absence status on reentry. 

— Illinois Teacher of the Year recipients. 

WAIVER OF TUITION 

Tuition is waived for: 

— All faculty and academic professional employees (excluding gradu- 
ate assistants) of the University on appointment for at least 25 percent 
of full-time service, provided the appointments require service for not 
less than three-fourths of a term. This waiver also applies to employ- 
ees of certain specifically identified related agencies whose positions 
are considered equivalent to academic positions of the University. 

— Graduate teaching and research assistants of the University on 
appointment for at least 25 percent but not more than 67 percent of 
full-time service. Their appointments must require service for not less 
than three-fourths of the term. Those on appointment for 68 percent or 
more of full-time service pay tuition at the in-state rate and are eligible 
for waiver of the Service Fee only. Caution: Assistantship appoint- 
ments are cumulative. For example, if a person holds two appoint- 
ments, a 25-percent and a 50-percent assistantship appointment, he or 
she is ineligible for a tuition waiver. 

— Students holding appointments — as employees, graduate assis- 
tants, or fellows — to the close of the final term of an academic year, for 
whom tuition and/or the Service Fee have been provided through 
waiver, are entitled to a waiver of the same kinds of tuition and fees 
for the summer session or summer term immediately following, 
provided they hold no appointments during that summer session or 
term. Students holding summer session or summer term appoint- 
ments as fellows or as employees are subject to such tuition and fees 
as would be assessed in accordance with the principles expressed 
above. 

— Staff employees of the University, of any other institutions and 
agencies under the University Civil Service System, and of certain 
specifically identified related agencies in status appointments or in 
appointments designed to qualify for status in an established class 
(e.g., trainee, intern) for at least 50 percent of full-time services who 
register in regular University courses not to exceed: 

• Six credit hours or two courses in a semester or quarter if on full- 
time appointment, 

• Four credit hours if on a 75- to 99-percent time appointment, or 

• Three credit hours if on a 50- to 74-percent time appointment, 
provided they (1) meet conditions and eligibility for admission as 

prescribed by the Office of Admissions and Records, (2) are not 
students as defined in Civil Service Rule 7.7c, and (3) have approval by 
their employing departments of enrollment and of a makeup schedule 
to cover any time in course attendance during their regular work 
schedules. The waiver of tuition also applies to any additional hours 



of registration by staff employees that keep them within the same fee 
assessment credit range. Staff employees whose total registration is in 
a higher range than that authorized by their tuition waiver pay only 
the difference between the waiver authorization and the higher range 
in which their total registration places them. 

— Staff employees in status, learner, trainee, apprentice, or provi- 
sional appointments may enroll without payment of tuition in regular 
courses directly related to their University employment not to exceed 
10 credit hours per semester provided they have made application 
and received prior approval for enrollment as required by procedures 
issued by the director of Staff Human Resources and set forth in Policy 
and Rules — Staff. 

— Holders of tuition waiver scholarships. 

— Holders of graduate tuition and fee waivers awarded by the 
Graduate College. 

— University of Illinois faculty, academic, and staff retirees. 

— Holders of grants or contracts from outside sponsors that provide 
payments to cover the total cost of instruction. 

— Cooperating teachers and administrators who receive assignment 
of practice teachers, who receive assignment of students meeting the 
clinical experience requirement in teacher education curricula, or who 
cooperate in research projects related to teacher education: one semes- 
ter, quarter, or summer session for each semester, quarter, or equiva- 
lent service rendered within two consecutive semesters. The waiver 
will apply to the semester, quarter, or summer session of registration, 
as designated by the student, that is concurrent with, or following, the 
term of service, but must be applied no later than one calendar year 
from the end of the term of service. Concurrent registration on more 
than one campus of the University or in University extramural courses 
constitutes one semester, quarter, or session of eligibility for waiver. 
A similar waiver is authorized for cooperating librarians, school- 
nurse teachers, social welfare field supervisors, developmental child 
care field supervisors, recreation field supervisors, health-education 
field supervisors, speech pathology supervisors, educational psychol- 
ogy supervisors, continuing education supervisors, industrial rela- 
tions field supervisors, and physicians who participate without salary 
in the instructional program of the University of Illinois College of 
Medicine at Urbana-Champaign. (Acceptance of more than one as- 
signment from any of the above listed offices during any one term will 
generate only one waiver.) 

— Illinois Teacher of the Year recipients. 

— Eligible Illinois senior citizens. (Persons desiring information and/ 
or an application for this waiver should contact the Office of Student 
Financial Aid, Fourth Floor, Turner Student Services Building, 610 
East John Street, Champaign, IL 61820.) 

— Children of eligible employees. 

WAIVER OF THE NONRESIDENT PORTION OF TUITION 

Nonresident portion of tuition is waived for: 

— Employees on appointment for at least 25 percent of full-time 
service with the University or with specifically identified related 
agencies, provided the appointment requires service for not less than 
three-fourths of the term. 

— The faculties of state-supported institutions of higher education in 
Illinois holding appointments of at least one-fourth time, provided the 
appointments require service for not less than three-fourths of the 
term. 

— The teaching and professional staff in the private and public 
elementary and secondary schools in Illinois (such as counselors, 
school psychologists, school social workers, librarians, and adminis- 
trators) who hold such appointments at least one-fourth time, and for 
not less than three-fourths of the term. 

— The spouses and dependent children of employees on appoint- 
ment with the University or certain specifically identified related 
agencies for at least 25 percent of full-time service, and of those listed 
in the second item above. (Dependent children are those who qualify 
as dependents for federal income tax purposes.) 

— The spouses and dependent children of fellows and trainees who 
are employed as teaching assistants to the fullest extent permitted by 
their fellowship appointments. 

— Persons actively serving in one of the armed forces of the United 
States who are stationed and present in the state of Illinois in connec- 
tion with that service and their spouses and dependent children, as 
long as the military persons remain stationed, present, and living in 
this state.

STUDENT HEALTH INSURANCE FEE 

Students totally exempt from payment of the Student Health Insur- 
ance Fee and therefore not eligible for these benefits and services are: 

— Persons registered for doctoral thesis research in absentia. 

— Persons registered in off-campus courses and study-abroad courses 
for zero credit. (If registered for more than zero credit, they are 
required to pay this fee.) 

— University employees registered at the request of their depart- 
ments in zero-credit courses especially established to improve their 
work. 

— Employees who are registered as students but who are eligible for 
and participate in the mandatory State of Illinois Employees Insur- 
ance Program. 

— Employees of certain specifically identified related agencies who 
are eligible automatically to receive hospital-medical coverage as an 
employment benefit at the cost of the employing agency. 

— Students presenting petitions and evidence of approved equiva- 
lent medical insurance coverage (See Student Health Insurance.) 

— Illinois Teacher of the Year recipients. 

— CIC Visiting Scholars and concurrent University of Illinois regis- 
trants. 

STUDENT HEALTH INSURANCE 

The University Board of Trustees requires all students to be covered 
by health insurance through either a program provided by the Univer- 
sity or one determined to be equivalent to that offered by the Univer- 
sity. Tuition and fee waivers do not apply to the student insurance 
fee. 

The Student Insurance Office is permanently located at 807 South 
Wright Street, Suite 480, Champaign. For the semester periods when 
the Registration Service Center is open, an insurance station is oper- 
ated in the Illini Union for the first (fall) semester. During the times the 
Registration Service Center station is open, all exemptions, reinstate- 
ments, and applications for coverage must be made at that location. 
Students should consult the current Timetable for the dates and times 
of of Registration Service Center activities. 

Students registered in University classes for residence work are 
assessed a fee each registration to cover the cost of the program. A 
student presenting evidence of equivalent medical insurance cover- 
age (a copy of the insurance policy or a schedule of benefits) may be 
exempted from payment of this fee upon approval of a petition 
submitted IN PERSON at the Insurance Office (or other location 
specified in the current Timetable) by no later than the final date 
established each term for a refund of tuition and fees. A signed waiver 
and assumption of responsibility is also required. An exemption will 
continue in effect until such time as the student requests reinstatement 
to the plan or does not respond to a periodic request to confirm that he 
or she continues to be covered by another health plan. Reinstatement 
may also be requested at any other time up to the last day of coverage 
for a semester or term. Reinstatement is guaranteed if application is 
within thirty-one days of the termination of other insurance; after 
thirty-one days, or at any other time, reinstatement is subject to 
approval of a statement of medical history. If approved, a pre-existing 
condition limitation will be applicable for the first 120 days of cover- 
age. The premium is not prorated for a partial semester of coverage. 

— First (fall) semester coverage extends through the Friday before 
the first day of class for the second (spring) semester. 

— Second (spring) semester coverage extends through the day prior 
to the first day of class for the eight-week summer term 2. 

— Summer session coverage extends through the Friday before the 
first day of class for the first (fall) semester. 

Premium rates for each semester or term may be found in the 
respective Timetable. 

Married students may purchase student health insurance to cover 
spouses and dependent children upon application and payment of an 
additional premium at the Student Insurance Office location in the 
Registration Service Center while open. (The last day the Registration 
Service Center is open is the deadline to purchase dependent coverage 
for that semester/term.) Application and premium payments must be 



made for each semester or term. Premiums for spouses and children 
may not be charged to student accounts. 

Petitions for exemption or reinstatement, and applications for 
dependent or extension of coverage must be submitted IN PERSON. 
Therefore, any petitions and applications that are mailed to the 
Student Insurance Office or included with payments made by mail 
will be returned to the sender without action; such items must be 
resubmitted by the student in person within the stated deadline for the 
term in question. Students who fail to present this information before 
the Registration Service Center closes will be required to participate in 
the Student Health Insurance Program for that semester /term. 

Financial Aid 

Financial aid programs are developed to provide assistance to stu- 
dents who otherwise would not be able to pursue a postsecondary 
education. A basic principle of most aid programs is that students and 
their parents pay for an education according to their capabilities. 
Therefore, student financial aid programs are designed to supple- 
ment — not replace — a family's contribution toward educational costs. 

Even with relatively low tuition and fee charges, the cost of a 
college education still can be a financial burden for many families. 
(Estimated expenses for an undergraduate student at the University 
appear in Table 3 on page 26.) However, no student should fail to 
apply for admission because his or her family feels unable to pay the 
full cost of a college education. 

The Office of Student Financial Aid (Fourth Floor, Turner Student 
Services Building, 610 E. John Street, Champaign IL 61820) adminis- 
ters most federal, state, and institutional financial aid programs at the 
University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. If a family's resources are 
determined to be insufficient to meet necessary educational expenses, 
financial aid in the form of loans, employment, grants, and /or schol- 
arships may be made available to the student and his or her parent(s). 

Counselors in the Office of Student Financial Aid are available to 
help those needing information on financial assistance. Office hours 
are from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday, except on all- 
campus holidays. Students and their parents may call the office at 
(217) 333-0100 or visit its home page at http://www.odos.uiuc.edu/ 
osfa/. 

APPLYING FOR AID 

Students must complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid 
(FAFSA) to apply for all need-based financial aid administered by the 
Office of Student Financial Aid — including federal, state, and institu- 
tional grants, scholarships, loans, and work-study. Those continuing 
students who filed a FAFSA to apply for aid during the preceding 
academic year should receive a Renewal FAFSA directly from the 
federal processor around January or February prior to the academic 
year for which aid is desired. Students who are applying for aid for the 
first time should complete and submit to the federal processor a 
regular FAFSA. FAFSAs are available at most college or university 
financial aid offices, or from most high school guidance counselors 
and libraries. 

When completing the Renewal FAFSA or regular FAFSA, students 
should identify the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign as the 
school to which the information on the FAFSA should be sent. In 
Section H, they should list Title IV Code: 001775; College Name: 
University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign; College Address: 610 E. 
John Street; City: Champaign; State: IL. 

The University's preferential filing date for financial aid is mid- 
March prior to the academic year for which aid is desired. All requests 
for assistance filed by March 15 will be given equal consideration for 
campus-based aid (awards made by the Office of Student Financial 
Aid). Students who apply after March 15 will be considered only if 
funds are still available. Because eligibility for need-based financial 
aid depends upon a family's financial situation, which can change on 
an annual basis, students must reapply for financial aid each year. 

After a student completes a FAFSA, he or she should send it to the 
U.S. Department of Education's federal processor in the envelope 
provided with the application. Applying a needs-analysis formula to 
the information the student provides on the FAFSA, the federal 
processor will determine his or her Expected Family Contribution 
(EFC) — the amount that the federal processor calculates the student 
and his or her family should be able to contribute toward that 



PROGRAMS OF STUDY 



30 



student's college education during the academic year. The processing 
time usually takes four to six weeks from the time the processor 
receives your FAFSA. 

Upon determining the student's EFC, the federal processor will 
mail to him or her Student Aid Report (SAR). The SAR explains how 
the EFC was calculated, as well as whether the student has been 
selected for a process called verification. Approximately 30 percent of 
all financial aid applicants are selected for verification and are re- 
quired to submit to the Office of Student Financial Aid copies of 
documents from which the Office can ensure the accuracy of the 
information provided on the FAFSA. (These documents include, but 
are not limited to,copiesof thesrudent'sand/orhisor her parents' tax 
returns). The student should read and follow any instructions on the 
front of the SAR. 

The Office of Student Financial Aid will receive the student's 
needs-analysis information from the federal processor electronically 
and will determine his or her financial need and eligibility for aid by 
subtracting his or her EFC from the estimated cost of attendance. 

The FAFSA offers students the opportunity to forward informa- 
tion to state agencies and other schools so that they may be considered 
for state and university aid as well as federal programs. To be 
considered for any aid administered by the student's state of resi- 
dence, the student should leave the response oval in Question 104 of 
the FAFSA blank. 

AID NOTIFICATIONS 

After the Office of Student Financial Aid has received the student's 
data from the federal processor and calculated his or her financial 
need, it will determine the types and amounts of aid for which the 
student is eligible. Then the Office will send the student a Student 
Financial Aid Notification (also called an award letter). Students 
should read their Aid Notifications carefully and thoroughly, and 
follow any instructions. To receive aid without unnecessary delays, 
students need to follow through on each required procedure. 

SOURCES OF FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE 

There are several types of financial aid available. As the University's 
funds are limited, students should seek assistance provided by na- 
tional, state, and local organizations. 

SCHOLARSHIPS 

Most University merit-based scholarships are awarded by academic 
departments or colleges. Usually, departments notify students if they 
are eligible to receive a scholarship on the basis of their academic 
records or admissions information. 

There are many scholarships that are offered and awarded by 
private corporations and nonprofit organizations each year. While it 
is the student's responsibility to search and apply for such scholar- 
ships, there are scholarship search services available to help. Two such 
services are the Illinois Student Assistance Commission's Higher 
EdNet service and an online service called Fast WEB. For more informa- 
tion about both of these services, please see the Office of Student 
Financial Aid Web page (http://www.odos.uiuc.edu/osfa/). 

GRANTS 

The Office of Student Financial Aid automatically considers students 
for each of the grant programs it administers when the student applies 
for aid using the FAFSA. Students do not complete a separate applica- 
tion for these grants. 

Two major sources of financial assistance for undergraduate stu- 
dents are the Federal Pell Grant and the Illinois Student Assistance 
Commission (ISAC) Monetary Award Program (MAP) grant. For 
1996-97, Federal Pell Grant awards ranged from $200 to $2470 and 
ISAC MAP grants ranged from $400 to $4000. 

The Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant is a 
program distinct from the Federal Pell Grant. The federal government 
annually provides postsecondary institutions will allocations from 
which awards are made. During 1 996-97, awards ranged from $100 to 
$2,500. 

Students for Equal Access to Learning (SEAL) and Student-to- 
Student Matching (STSM) grant programs are funded by voluntary 
student contributions and matching funds provided by the state 
through the Illinois Student Assistance Commission. Students at 
Urbana-Champaign initiated the SEAL program by referendum in 
1970 and have reaffirmed it every four years since then. STSM grants 



are awarded in accordance to rules prescribed by the Illinois Student 
Assistance Commisssion. During academic year 1996-97, awards 
ranged from $100 to $1,000. 

EMPLOYMENT: A FORM OF SELF-HELP FINANCIAL AID 

The Office of Student Financial Aid offers employment assistance to 
University students seeking part-time work. The University employs 
more than 14,000 part-time student workers across campus. Each 
year, these students earn more than $11 million. Additionally, many 
students work in the community. 

Hourly wages for student workers vary according to the type of 
work and responsibilities involved, but equal at least nrinimum wage. 
Most jobs require from 10 to 15 hours of work per week. 

FEDERAL WORK-STUDY 

Federal Work-Study is a financial aid program that helps colleges and 
university provide jobs for students. To participate in the program, a 
student must apply for financial aid and have a Federal Work-Study 
award as part of a financial aid package from the Office of Student 
Financial Aid. 

Students awarded Federal Work-Study must check with the Office 
of Student Financial Aid to obtain assistance in job placement. This 
should be done at the beginning of the academic year. 

STUDENT LOANS: ANOTHER FORM OF SELF-HELP 
FINANCIAL AID 

The Office of Student Financial aid offers University of Illinois Long- 
Term Loans and Federal Perkins Loans to students demonstrating 
considerable financial need. These loans carry an interest rate of 5 
percent and repayment is deferred until six months after the borrower 
ceases to be a full-time student. 

FEDERAL DIRECT STUDENT LOANS 

The University of Illinois participates in the William D. Ford Federal 
Direct Student Loan program. Under the Direct Loan program, the 
University disburses loans directly to students through funds re- 
ceived from the federal government. All students who apply for 
financial aid using the FAFSA and who are enrolled at least half-time 
are automatically considered for Direct Loans by the Office of Student 
Financial Aid. 

Subsidized Direct Loans are available to students demonstrating 
financial need. The interest subsidy is paid by the federal government 
while the borrower is in school, and payments are deferred until six 
months after the borrower ceases to be enrolled at least half-time. 
Based on year in school and financial need, students may borrow up 
to annual maximums set by the federal government. At the freshman 
level (under 30 credit hours), a student may borrow up to $2,625; at the 
sophomore level (31-59 credit hours), $3,500; and at the junior and 
senior levels (60+ credit hours), $5,500. The aggregate maximum that 
a student can borrow for undergraduate study is $23,000. The interest 
rate varies, but the maximum is 8.25 percent. 

Parents of dependent students can borrow a Federal Direct PLUS 
Loan through the Direct Loan program. For each dependent student, 
each year parents may borrow up to educational costs minus the 
amount of other aid the student receives. Payments begin while the 
student is still in school. The interest rate varies, but the maximum is 
9 percent. 

Graduate students and students who meet the federal government's 
definition of an independent student (defined on the FAFSA) gener- 
ally are eligible to borrow unsubsidized Direct Loans in addition to 
subsidized Direct Loans. While payments on the amount borrowed 
are deferred until the student borrower leaves school, and a relatively 
attractive interest rate (maximum 8.25 percent) is charged, interest 
accrues while the student is in school. Based on class level and the 
amount of any subsidized Direct Loans that the student is receiving, 
independent undergraduates may borrow up to the following annual 
amounts: freshman, $6,625; sophomore, $7,500; and juniors and 
seniors, $10,500. 

SPECIALIZED AID PROGRAMS 

Although most guidelines for awarding financial aid to Urbana- 
Champaign students are determined by the Office of Student Finan- 
cial Aid, some aid programs are administered by groups and agencies 
to which the student applies directly. Such programs include the 
Illinois Veterans Grants, Illinois Department of Children and Family 
Services Assistance, Illinois Department of Rehabilitation Services, 
Children of Veterans Scholarships, General Assembly Scholarships, 



SPECIAL PROGRAMS 



31 



Illinois National Guard/Naval Militia Scholarships, Illinois Reserve 
Officers' Training Corps (ROTC) Scholarships, and MIA-POW De- 
pendents Grants. For more information about these scholarships, 
students should visit the Office of Student Financial Aid home page at 
or contact the administering agency directly. 

SHORT-TERM LOANS 

To meet expenses in emergencies, undergraduates may borrow up to 
$200 for approximately 30 days or until the last day of instruction for 
the semester, whichever comes first. To make more money available 
to a maximum number of students, applicants should borrow as little 
as is necessary for as short a period of time as possible. A service fee 
of $3 is charged The interest charge on overdue short-term loans is 1 8 
percent annually on the unpaid balance. 

Students who are U.S. citizens or permanent residents should 
apply in person to the Office of Student Financial Aid. Students are 
required to provide their i-cards for identification. International stu- 
dents (noncitizens who are not in the United States as permanent 
residents) should contact the Office of International Student Affairs 
(510 E. Daniel Street, Champaign IL 61820) for information. 

Precollege Programs 



PROGRAMS FOR FRESHMEN 

The University offers fall semester freshmen the opportunity to com- 
plete required testing, to become acquainted with the campus, and to 
receive academic advising and complete registration during a sum- 
mer two-day period prior to the beginning of the fall semester. These 
opportunities are explained fully in the booklet Get Ready for Illinois, 
which is sent to all accepted applicants. 

Freshmen entering in the fall semester who do not participate in 
the placement testing and summer orientation /advance enrollment 
programs must complete their required testing, academic advising, 
and class scheduling during the week immediately preceding the start 
of classes. Thus, participation in the precollege sessions is strongly 
urged to ensure a smooth transition to the University environment. 

Precollege programs are not available for freshmen entering the 
University during the spring semester; they must complete required 
testing, academic advising, and registration during the week immedi- 
ately preceding the start of classes. 

PLACEMENT TESTING 

Placement tests are designed to help determine the levels at which 
students are best prepared to begin University study in particular 
subject areas. Scores of these tests are used for initial placement 
purposes only and are not recorded on student official academic 
records. The requirements for placement testing vary by college and 
curriculum, and the Get Ready for Illinois booklet provides full details 
on the required and optional tests. 

During March, April, and May, beginning freshmen who have 
been admitted to the fall semester come to either the Urbana- 
Champaign campus or to the University of Illinois at Chicago campu s 
to participate in a one-day program of required testing. The tests taken 
during this day are the Rhetoric Essay Test, and placement tests in 
mathematics, chemistry, and foreign languages. These tests must be 
taken by admitted students if they had these subjects in high school, 
but have not received college credit for them, and intend to pursue 
these subjects at the University either as required or elective courses. 

Students who live outside of Illinois and more than 250 miles from 
Champaign-Urbana have the option of completing placement testing 
on the first day of the orientation/advance enrollment program. 

An admitted freshman who fails to complete all required testing 
by the conclusion of the summer program will be assessed a $25 late 
fee (amount subject to change) to take the tests immediately preceding 
the start of classes if (1 ) the freshman is a resident of Illinois and (2) the 
Notice of Admission to the University is dated prior to May 1. 

ACADEMIC ADVISING AND ORIENTATION/REGISTRATION 

A student who has completed the testing required by his or her college 
may participate in the two-day orientation/registration program 
conducted at the Urbana-Champaign campus during June and July. 
During that period, the student has an opportunity to learn about the 
expectations of professors and the level of academic standards at the 
University, as well as the chance to interact with other entering 



students and currently enrolled University students. Additionally, 
the new student is able to receive his or her student identification card 
and to become acquainted with the physical arrangement of the 
campus, housing facilities, and many other facets of campus life. If 
interested, the student also has the opportunity to audition for band 
and choral organizations. 

The student's stay culminates in a meeting with an academic 
adviser who provides information about academic opportunities and 
requirements and assists the student in selecting a schedule of courses 
for the fall semester. 

Since the placement test results are used by the colleges and 
academic departments concerned to evaluate student achievement 
levels and to assist in arranging class schedules, freshmen must 
complete all required testing before they can participate in summer 
orientation /registration . 

A program charge includes one night's accommodations, three 
meals, and program events. The program charge is waived for any 
student who received an admission application fee waiver based on 
extreme financial hardship. 

PROGRAMS FOR TRANSFER STUDENTS 

New transfer students have the opportunity to register for the fall 
semester during a special one-day program held during the summer. 
At that time the student meets with an academic adviser to discuss the 
transfer of credit for all previous college course work, to learn the 
student's status in terms of progress toward a degree from the Univer- 
sity, and to select classes for the fall. The student also has the oppor- 
tunity to meet in a small group with currently enrolled University 
students, to interact with other entering students, and to receive his or 
her student identification card. Each transfer student receives details 
of the advance enrollment program in the Get Ready for Illinois booklet 
mailed with the Notice of Admission. 

PROGRAM FOR PARENTS 

Parents are cordially invited and encouraged to accompany their sons 
and daughters to the campus for the summer program and to partici- 
pate in a Parent Orientation Program. Through a variety of informa- 
tion sessions, parents will have the opportunity to meet and speak 
with campus administrators, faculty, students, and members of the 
Mothers and Dads Associations. A program charge includes one 
night's accommodations, three meals, and program events. Parents 
likewise may take advantage of the opportunity to tour the campus.

Special Programs 

Because of the comprehensive nature of the University of Illinois at 
Urbana-Champaign, arrangements for talented and highly motivated 
students differ among the various colleges and departments. Gener- 
ally speaking, talented and highly motivated students are able to enter 
special courses or special sections of courses as freshmen and sopho- 
mores and are encouraged as juniors and seniors to participate in 
special programs for majors offered by the many departments. For 
details of these arrangements, see the descriptions in the college 
sections of this catalog.

ADVANCED PLACEMENT PROGRAM 



Foreign Languages 



The Advanced Placement Program, administered by the College 
Entrance Examination Board, is designed for high school students 
who are about to enter college and wish to demonstrate their readiness 
for courses more advanced than those usually studied in the freshman 
year. Advanced classes are offered in many high schools in one or 
more of the following subjects: American and comparative govern- 
ment and politics, art history, art studio, computer science, English 
language and composition, English literature and composition, French 
language, French literature, German language, Latin, Spanish lan- 
guage, Spanish literature, biology, chemistry, mathematics (calculus), 
micro- and macroeconomics, physics, psychology, music literature, 
music theory, and social studies (American history and European 
history). A national examination in each subject, administered in May 
by the Educational Testing Service, is designed to measure the compe- 
tence of students in terms of the point at which college study in that 
subject should begin. The University encourages high schools and 
their outstanding students to participate in this program. 

Examinations are prepared and graded by national committees of 
high school and college teachers. They are graded on the following 
scale: 5, high honors; 4, honors; 3, creditable; 2, pass; and 1, fail. Grade 
reports are sent to the universities each student specifies at the time of 
the examination. Each department within the University of Illinois at 
Urbana-Champaign has the option of granting, or not granting, col- 
lege credit and advanced placement on the basis of the board's grade. 

Transfer students should refer to the section on Acceptance of 
Nontraditional Transfer Credit on page 20 for the policy on accepting 
credit earned through the Advanced Placement Program. 

Specific credit recommendations for beginning freshmen at the 
Urbana-Champaign campus are listed below. Assignment of credit 
for specific courses is dependent upon policies established by the 
individual departments and colleges and is subject to change upon 
annual review. This information is also available on the Web at http: /

INTERNATIONAL BACCALAUREATE EXAMINATIONS 

The International Baccalaureate (IB) Program, sponsored by a Swiss 
foundation, offers a curriculum covering either the last two years of 
secondary education or the twelfth and thirteenth grades in a thirteen- 
grade system. Successful completion of the program is based on the 
completion of course work and passage of internationally prepared 
examinations. The examinations are written at two levels of study: 
High Level, administered after a minimum of 240 hours of teaching 
time in a subject; and Subsidiary Level, administered after a minimum 
of 160 hours of teaching time in a subject. 

The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign will award profi- 
ciency credit to new, continuing, and transfer students on the basis of 
scores from several International Baccalaureate examinations: anthro- 
pology, biology, chemistry, classics (Latin and Greek), economics, 
French, German, history, and philosophy. University departments 
establish policies for awarding proficiency credit and advanced place- 
ment for each score on the IB scale of 1 to 7. Those wishing to have such 
examination scores evaluated should request that official score tran- 
scripts be sent to the Division of Measurement and Evaluation, Uni- 
versity of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, 247 Armory Building, 505 
East Armory Avenue, Champaign, IL 61820. 

The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign may accept, for 
transfer purposes, IB credit awarded by another institution if the 
transfer student meets two requirements: (1) the student must have 
earned at least 12 semester hours of graded college-level classroom 
credit at that same institution or campus, and (2) the student must 
have earned classroom credit for a more advanced course in the same 
subject area at that same institution. The advanced course must be 
fully acceptable under University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign 
transfer credit policies. Transfer students who have not met these 
requirements may request that official copies of their scores be sent to 
the Division of Measurement and Evaluation. Such scores will be 
evaluated using the same standards applied to the scores of continu- 
ing students at the University. 

The specific credit and placement policies for International Bacca- 
laureate examinations recognized by this campus are given below. 
This information is subject to change upon annual review by each 
department concerned.

PROFICIENCY EXAMINATIONS 



Proficiency examinations are offered in most courses open to fresh- 
men and sophomores. A student may take proficiency examinations 
in more advanced undergraduate courses on recommendation of the 
head or chairperson of the department in which the course is offered 
and approval of the dean of the student's college. Departmental 
proficiency examinations are administered in individual sessions or 
scheduled group sessions during the semester. Departmental offices 
can provide information regarding test dates, places of administra- 
tion, types of examination, and references that might be used when 
preparing for examinations. Course descriptions and prerequisites 
are listed in the Courses catalog. (See the inside back cover of this 
publication for locations at which the Courses catalog may be ob- 
tained.) Proficiency examinations are generally given without cost to 
students, but fees may be charged to defray the cost of proficiency 
examinations prepared by agencies outside the University. 

All regulations governing proficiency examinations will be ap- 
plied in the context that the University must reasonably accommodate 
a student's religious beliefs, observances, and practices in regard to 
scheduling of proficiency examinations if the student informs the 
person responsible for the scheduling of such examinations of the 
conflict within one week after being informed of the examination 
schedule. Any student may appeal an adverse decision. 

An enrolled undergraduate student who passes a proficiency 
examination is given credit toward graduation for the amount regu- 
larly allowed in the course ( 1 ) if it does not duplicate credit counted for 
admission to the University or credit earned through some other 
testing program and (2) if it is acceptable in the student's curriculum. 
No official record is made of failures in these examinations, but some 
departments may keep records to prohibit students from retaking the 
examinations. General campus policy information regarding profi- 
ciency examinations can be found in the Code of Policies and Regulations 
Applying to All Students. 

Transfer students should consult page 20 for the policy on accep- 
tance of proficiency credit for admission purposes. 

COLLEGE-LEVEL EXAMINATION PROGRAM (CLEP) 

This program exists for the purpose of awarding proficiency credit, or 
otherwise recognizing college-level competence achieved outside the 
college classroom. Two types of tests are available: (1) the general 
examination covers the broad content of a study that might be ex- 
pected to be covered by several introductory-level courses, and (2) the 
subject matter examination covers the specific content of a single 
college course. Credit can be earned and will be recognized by the 



PROGRAMS OF STUDY 



34 



University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign for some CLEP General 
Examinations, but credit is not awarded for any of the CLEP Subject 
Matter Examinations. 

Most students must fulfill general education requirements for 
degree purposes in four areas: humanities, social science /history, 
biological science, and physical science. CLEP General Examinations 
in humanities and social science can be used to earn waivers of the 
corresponding general education requirements, or parts of them, and 
to earn degree credit. Credit is not awarded by the University for 
scores from the CLEP General Examinations in English composition, 
mathematics, or natural science. A CLEP test provides an opportunity 
for a student to demonstrate knowledge in a general subject area that 
is as thorough as that required of a graduate who has not majored in 
that particular area. General education requirements are designed to 
ensure that graduates of the University are generalists as well as 
specialists. The University recognizes that this general knowledge 
may have been acquired by entering students through high school 
work, independent study, extracurricular reading, projects, or work 
experience. CLEP General Examination scores can be used to earn 3 or 
6 credit hours and waiver of all or part of the requirement in each of 
the two general education areas. College policies vary in terms of the 
tests that are acceptable for earning credit and waiver, and in terms of 
the scores required for partial or complete waiver of a requirement. 

Students may take CLEP examinations at any CLEP National 
Testing Center designated by the Educational Testing Service (ETS), 
Box 966, Princeton, New Jersey 08540. Official score reports should be 
sent by ETS to coordinator, Placement and Proficiency Testing, Uni- 
versity of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, 247 Armory Building, 505 
East Armory Avenue, Champaign, IL 61820. Locations of CLEP Na- 
tional Testing Centers and test administration dates may be obtained 
by writing to ETS, or by inquiring at most college and high school 
counseling offices. 

CLEP test scores earned by beginning freshmen at the Urbana- 
Champaign campus, including students with less than 12 semester 
hours of transferable classroom credit attempted at other collegiate 
institutions, are evaluated for credit according to norms established 
for the campus. Transfer students should refer to the section on 
Acceptance of Nontraditional Transfer Credit on page 20 for the policy 
on accepting credit earned through CLEP examinations. 

CLEP examination scores reported by the Defense Activity for 
Non-Traditional Education Support (D ANTES) testing centers will be 
evaluated against the same criteria that are applied to continuing 
students on the Urbana-Champaign campus. 

CAMPUS HONORS PROGRAM 

The Campus Honors Program (CHP) offers special challenges and 
opportunities to a small number of academically talented and highly 
motivated undergraduate students. It fosters collaborative relation- 
ships between students and distinguished faculty through small 
intensive classes, a faculty mentor system for introducing students to 
the intellectual standards and methodologies of academic disciplines, 
and informal contacts encouraged by cocurricular offerings. CHP 
sponsors four series of noncredit cocurricular events: a "Scholar 
Adventurers" lecture series on faculty research; a "Study Abroad at 
Home" series of seminar-workshops centering on other cultures; a 
series of dress-rehearsal visits at Krannert Center for the Performing 
Arts; and an "International Tasting Club" lunch series. The aim is to 
encourage breadth and excellence from the outset of the student's 
college career, and to facilitate interaction with scholars at the cutting 
edge of their disciplines. 

Only approximately 125 new students can be admitted to the CHP 
each year as first-year students. A few additional students, however, 
may join the program on an off-cycle basis at the beginning of the 
sophomore year. Designated as Chancellor's Scholars, CHP students 
may be enrolled in any undergraduate curriculum. Those who meet 
retention requirements continue as Chancellor's Scholars throughout 
their undergraduate career. Required CHP course work is concen- 
trated in the freshman and sophomore years when students take 
intensive and specialized versions of general education courses. At 
the junior and senior level, when students are necessarily involved in 
their majors, they are required to take one advanced CHP seminar. In 
short, the emphasis is on fundamental principles and interdiscipli- 
nary connections because the CHP is directed at students who desire 
an undergraduate education that is broad and general as well as 
professionally specialized. 



It is as important to understand what CHP is not, as to understand 
what it is. CHP courses represent additional opportunities for aca- 
demically gifted and adventurous students; they are not an alternative 
curriculum. Basically, they provide an honors-quality way of satisfy- 
ing general education requirements for graduation and of helping 
students to discover the interrelations between their own discipline 
and other disciplines. Nor does CHP supplant or conflict with depart- 
mental honors programs. In consultation with their departmental 
academic advisers, Chancellor's Scholars develop their own combina- 
tion of regular and CHP courses. Accordingly, most of the courses 
CHP students take are regular University offerings. 

Most importantly, CHP is a challenge. A Chancellor's Scholar 
must make a special commitment to the intellectual life, and to the 
dialogue and community in the Honors House. 

BENEFITS 

As a small general studies program within a large state university, the 
Campus Honors Program seeks to combine the advantages of a major 
public institution with those of a small liberal arts college. Opportuni- 
ties offered by the program include: 

— Challenging courses designed especially for CHP students, with 
limited enrollment (usually fifteen students or fewer), 

— Summer grants to fund student research projects ($1,000) and to 
support student domestic and foreign travel ($500 and $1,000, respec- 
tively), 

— A variety of social and intellectual activities outside the classroom, 
including cultural events and seminars on topics of interest, 

— Access to the University Library stacks, 

— Transcript notation of Chancellor's Scholar status, 

— Access to computer facilities in the Honors House and to a special 
communications electronic bulletin board, 

— Orientation and senior sibling programs for incoming students, 

— Honors House, the honors student center, which offers an atmo- 
sphere conducive to study and relaxation, 

— Priority registration for classes, and 

— Interaction with an outstanding group of peers. 

ADMISSION 

Entering freshmen with high ACT/SAT scores and exceptional high 
school records are invited by CHP to apply for admission to the 
program, but any incoming or currently enrolled freshman may ask to 
be considered. Acceptance is based upon such factors as standardized 
test scores, high school class rank and grade-point average, evidence 
of creative and leadership abilities as displayed in extracurricular 
interests and activities, the strength of application essays, and evi- 
dence of willingness to accept CHP challenges and contribute to the 
program. The Honors Program is open to students in all majors 
offered on the Urbana-Champaign campus, and an effort is made to 
ensure that each incoming class of Chancellor's Scholars is broadly 
representative of the curricula of the University as a whole. Students 
who are strongly motivated not only to excel, but also to make a 
difference at Illinois are sought for Chancellor's Scholars. 

For additional information or to obtain an application form, con- 
tact the Campus Honors Program, University of Illinois at Urbana- 
Champaign, 1205 West Oregon Street, Urbana, IL 61801; (217) 244- 
0922. For full consideration, completed applications should be re- 
ceived by February 1 for admission the following fall. 

EDMUND ]. JAMES UNDERGRADUATE HONORS 
PROGRAMS 

Undergraduate honors programs, named for one of the University's 
distinguished presidents, Edmund J. James, provide a number of 
special curricular opportunities to academically talented undergradu- 
ate students. Designation by the University as "James Scholars" 
recognizes students of extraordinary ability and achievement. It en- 
titles students to certain academic privileges, including the extended 
use of library facilities, and charges them with the responsibility for 
seeking sustained intellectual achievement throughout their under- 
graduate careers. James Scholar honors students are characterized by 
outstanding academic records; high general aptitudes for college 
work; and reputations for seriousness of purpose, persistence, and 
self -discipline in educational endeavors. 

Students enrolled in any undergraduate curriculum may elect to 
participate in the program; special academic arrangements are open to 
James Scholar honors students in all courses of study. These arrange- 



SPECIAL PROGRAMS 



35 



ments include provision of honors courses and sections, special semi- 
nars, and interdisciplinary colloquia. In addition, James Scholars are 
encouraged to pursue individual scholarly interests through indepen- 
dent study and research projects. There is no monetary award associ- 
ated with this program, and students who need financial assistance 
should apply to the Office of Student Financial Aid. 

NOMINATION PROCEDURES 

Academic requirements for participation in the program are deter- 
mined by the respective colleges. Undergraduates in most colleges 
may "self-nominate" into the program, provided that the decision is 
based on prior achievement and on high school and college faculty or 
administrative advice, and is accomplished prior to the terminal dates 
set for entry into academic programs leading to honors degrees. In the 
Colleges of Education, Liberal Arts and Sciences, and Commerce and 
Business Administration, entering students with higher than a prede- 
termined college selection index are automatically admitted as James 
Scholar Designates. (See pages 84 and 135 for further information 
regarding James Scholar honors students in these colleges.) Students 
may elect to leave the program or may be removed for failure to meet 
standards of academic performance in the various colleges. 

During summer orientation/registration, freshmen in most col- 
leges will receive additional information regarding specific college 
programs leading to honors degrees. At that time, in consultation with 
an adviser, a student may self-nominate into the program and select 
an honors course or plan other honors activities. 

Although the honors program in each college varies in detail, any 
incoming freshman electing to undertake an honors program will 
enter the University as a James Scholar Designate. After completion of 
a period on campus, each designate's record will be reviewed by his 
or her college. The student then will be invited to continue annual 
certification as a James Scholar honors student or advised to leave the 
program on the basis of criteria developed by the college. Resident and 
transfer students wishing to self -nominate into the program should 
inquire at their college offices. 

JAMES SCHOLAR RECOGNITION 

Successful performance for one year as a James Scholar honors stu- 
dent is recognized and recorded on the student's University record as 
Edmund J. James Scholar (year). 

Specific inquiries regarding the honors program of a particular 
college may be addressed to the college office in care of the honors 
dean. 

HONORS CREDIT LEARNING AGREEMENTS 

It is not expected that a James Scholar honors student will take a full 
schedule of special courses; however, at least one honors activity each 
semester is considered normal. To encourage sustained independent 
intellectual activity by superior students, the campuswide Honors 
Credit Learning Agreement Program enables students to earn offi- 
cially recognized honors credit in regular undergraduate courses. 
This is accomplished by a learning agreement between student and 
instructor whereby the student undertakes a special course-related 
project. Upon successful completion of the project, the student is 
awarded transcript-designated honors credit for the course. Forms for 
initiation of honors credit learning agreements are available in the 
college offices. 

TRANSITION PROGRAM 

Established in 1986, the Transition Program is a campus-sponsored 
academic support program designed to provide assistance to a group 
of 100 students admitted each year who have academic weaknesses 
that could place them "at risk" if they were permitted to enter the 
University without such assistance. The goal of the program is to 
provide students with a home base where they feel comfortable about 
asking questions, expressing their concerns, and receiving the sup- 
port, advice, and encouragement they need to be academically suc- 
cessful at, and to graduate from, the University of Illinois. Students are 
consistently encouraged to succeed; more important, they are shown 
how to succeed in the college classroom. 

These bright and talented students are admitted to the University 
through the Educational Opportunities Program and placed in the 
Transition Program, housed in the College of Liberal Arts and Sci- 
ences, where they will receive developmental academic support for 
two years. After a student has successfully completed four semesters 
in the Transition Program, an admission space is reserved in the 



college and/or curriculum of his or her choice, if the student is in good 
academic standing (C average or better) and has completed the 
required core courses for admission to that college and /or curricu- 
lum. 

The Transition Program is divided into two major components — 
the Summer Bridge component and an academic year component. 
Both components provide the student with 

1. Intensive academic and career counseling. 

2. Extensive academic and personal support services plus opportu- 
nities to enroll in support-based sections of existing courses. 

3. Comprehensive developmental skills as well as enhancement and 
enrichment activities. 

Only those students who officially apply to the University in the 
standard manner prescribed by the Office of Admissions and Records 
and who meet established campus and program deadlines for appli- 
cation will be considered for admission and placement in the Transi- 
tion Program. The final decision on which students will be admitted 
and placed in the Transition Program is the joint responsibility of the 
director of the Office of Admissions and Records and the director of 
the Transition Program, acting on behalf of the College of Liberal Arts 
and Sciences. 

GENERAL CRITERIA FOR PLACEMENT IN THE TRANSITION 
PROGRAM 

An applicant with a score of 17 or lower on the ACT English subtest 
area (320 on the SAT Verbal subtest area) or a score of 17 or lower on 
the ACT mathematics subtest area (350 on the SAT Math subtest area) 
is eligible for admission consideration through participation in the 
Educational Opportunities Program and placement in the Transition 
Program. In some cases, an interview with a Transition Program staff 
member may be required before an admission decision can be reached. 

BRIDGE ADMISSION 

An applicant with a score of 15 or lower on the ACT English subtest 
area or a score of 16 or lower on the ACT mathematics subtest area is 
eligible for admission consideration only through participation in the 
Educational Opportunities Program and placement in the Summer 
Bridge component of the Transition Program, unless there is strong 
evidence that participation in Summer Bridge is not necessary for the 
applicant's success. (Other applicants may be invited or required to 
participate in the Transition Program or the Summer Bridge compo- 
nent if, in the judgment of the director of the Office of Admissions and 
Records and the director of the Transition Program, such participation 
is necessary for the applicants' success at the University.) 

A student who meets Summer Bridge criteria will be required to 
complete placement tests designed for the Transition Program, fol- 
lowed by a personal interview with a program staff member before an 
admission decision can be reached. 

Eligibility of Summer Bridge participants to continue enrollment 
in the fall semester is contingent upon acceptable academic perfor- 
mance in the summer program and recommendation by the director 
of the Transition Program. 

THE SUMMER BRIDGE COMPONENT 

Each summer, 50 of the 100 students selected for placement in the 
Transition Program are required to participate in a six-week residen- 
tial summer session on the UIUC campus sponsored by the College of 
Liberal Arts and Sciences. The session engages these students in 
intensive course work in mathematics, composition, and basic skills 
development. In addition, Summer Bridge participants are provided 
with a variety of cultural enrichment activities and orientation to 
University resources, support services, and campus living. 

The Summer Bridge experience is provided at no cost to the students. 
Each participant receives institutional financial assistance to cover the 
cost of tuition, room, board, and books. In addition, with the exception 
of students who will participate in intercollegiate athletics and who are not 
eligible for such added financial assistance under current National Collegiate 
Athletic Association regulations, each participant receives a stipend of a 
modest weekly allowance and a lump-sum payment at the end of the 
summer session. 

Each Summer Bridge participant must successfully complete all 
course work with a grade of C or better before gaining admission for 
the fall semester. The Bridge experience offers students an invaluable 
opportunity to get a head start on their undergraduate education and 
to make important adjustments to the multiple demands of college 



PROGRAMS OF STUDY 



36 



life, including learning the difference between getting by and getting 
ahead. At the end of Summer Bridge, each student fully understands 
the relationship between hard work and success in the college class- 
room: the summer experience makes a significant difference! 

THE ACADEMIC YEAR COMPONENT 

Each fall, the successful Summer Bridge participants join the 50 other 
newly admitted Transition Program students. Each of the 200 Transi- 
tion Program students (including 100 returning sophomores) is as- 
signed to an adviser who is a graduate or professional student at the 
University. Each graduate adviser is responsible for providing aca- 
demic, career, and personal counseling to a group of twenty students; 
each student is required to meet with his or her graduate adviser at 
least once a week. The graduate advisers, along with the director and 
assistant director of the program, carefully monitor the academic 
progress of the students daily to ensure their success. 

In cooperation with various departments and colleges on campus, 
the Transition Program sponsors special sections of existing courses 
that are tailored to meet the students' individual needs. These courses 
are small and allow for extensive teacher-student interaction; in 
addition, the instructors for these courses meet regularly with the 
program staff and submit weekly reports on the progress of the 
students. At no cost to the students, additional academic support is 
provided by the Office of Minority Student Affairs. 

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION 

Additional information about the Transition Program may be ob- 
tained by contacting the office of the director of the Transition Pro- 
gram, College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, 270 Lincoln Hall, 702 South

(867-2378). 

EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITIES PROGRAM 

GENERAL NATURE AND PURPOSE 

The Educational Opportunities Program (EOP) was established in 
1968. It is administered by the Office of Minority Student Affairs (see 
page 8), and it provides academic services and counseling support to 
students who (1) have high potential but are academically 
underprepared for their major area or (2) come from backgrounds that 
are underrepresented on the Urbana campus. The program's empha- 
sis is on supporting incoming students identified by the Office of 
Admissions and Records and college offices as being academically at 
risk in their preferred curricula. 

Students admitted through the program, along with many other 
students, receive financial support from federal loans and grants, 
Illinois Student Assistance Commission Monetary Awards, and Uni- 
versity tuition waivers. They also contribute toward their expenses 
through family contributions, summer and part-time employment, 
and personal loans. Supportive services for the program are provided 
by federal and University funds. 

Through the Educational Opportunities Program, the University 
is attempting to: 

— Admit students who otherwise might not be able to undertake a 
college-level program at a major educational institution, and assist 
them in completing a baccalaureate degree. Participants receive the 
same benefits as other students and additional support if required. 

— Increase the number of students from ethnic minority groups 
underrepresented on campus and raise the retention and graduation 
rates of participants. 

— Develop educational programs and policies, both academic and 
administrative, that will assist and support students in the program 
and that may well benefit all students. 

— Provide students not in the program the vital cultural and social 
experience of meeting, living with, and learning from students from 
other cultures. 

— Add ethnic diversity to the campus and ensure that all participants 
have a high probability of graduating from UIUC. 

— Provide and disseminate to other educational institutions and 
agencies information that will increase their ability to deal with 
educational and sociological problems of students from nontradi- 
tional backgrounds. 

— Provide information on securing financial aid, student employ- 
ment, and postgraduate opportunities to program participants. 



ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS 

Admission to the Educational Opportunities Program is limited to 
applicants from Illinois who are educationally or economically disad- 
vantaged and who fall into one of the following categories: 

— Beginning freshmen who meet the high school subject pattern 
requirements and the high school rank and test score combinations 
prescribed for the colleges and curricula of their choice. 

— Students not meeting the stated academic requirements, if the 
deans of the colleges concerned and the director of admissions and 
records (or their designated representatives) concur. 

It should be noted that in some curricula, such as the performing arts 
and aviation, additional requirements must be met. (See page 17.) 

SUPPORTIVE SERVICES 

Supportive services are available to help Educational Opportunities 
Program students meet a wide range of needs, as follows: 

— Extensive academic advising, taking into consideration students' 
past educational achievements, test results, abilities, and interests. 
The optimal class schedules and course selections are determined by 
students in consultation with special academic advisers in the various 
colleges. 

— Specially designed course offerings, including basic courses in 
rhetoric, mathematics, and special class sections in regular courses. 

— A Reading and Study Methods Clinic and Writing Laboratory to 
help improve reading, writing, and study skills. 

— A tutoring system conducted by the Office of Minority Student 
Affairs and students to help students in the program effectively 
approach and master subject content. 

— An office with a specially trained staff to provide academic, social, 
personal, financial, and career assistance and general counseling. 

— Precollege orientation programs to help students gain a greater 
awareness of the programs and services available at the University. 

APPLICATION 

Applicants for participation in the Educational Opportunities Pro- 
gram must submit complete admission applications and arrange for 
their high school transcripts and test scores to be sent to the Office of 
Admissions and Records. 

Application forms and additional information about the program 
may be obtained from the Office of Admissions and Records. 

SERVICES FOR STUDENTS WITH DISABILITIES 

The Division of Rehabilitation Education Services is the designated 
office of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign that obtains 
and files disability-related documents, certifies eligibility for disabil- 
ity services, determines reasonable accommodations, and develops 
plans for the provision of such accommodations for students and 
guests of the University with disabilities. Services offered by the 
Division include study skills consultation and training, academic and 
disability counseling, auxiliary aids (e.g., notetakers, lab or library 
assistants, interpreters, etc.), document conversion to alternative for- 
mats (e.g., Braille, tape, enlarged print, etc.), assistive listening de- 
vices, modified testing services, assistive computer technology, prior- 
ity registration, time extensions, and numerous other services. For 
example, the Division offers physical therapy and functional training, 
housing for students requiring assistance in the performance of activi- 
ties of daily living, accessible campus transportation, wheelchair and 
equipment repair, financial aid assistance, and an internationally 
acclaimed adapted sports program. The Division works closely with 
Campus Parking and the Housing Division to arrange appropriate 
housing and parking for students with disabilities. 

Prospective students are urged to contact the Division to request 
information about services and resources, and are strongly encour- 
aged to visit campus and the Division of Rehabilitation Education 
Services well in advance of enrollment to plan for their needs. The 
Division is located at 1207 South Oak Street, Champaign, Illinois 
61820. To phone or fax queries regarding the Division's student 
services, call 217-333-4603 (V/TDD) or 217-333-0248 (fax). 



GRADING SYSTEM AND OTHER REGULATIONS 



37 



COURSE ATTENDANCE BY ILLINOIS HIGH SCHOOL 
STUDENTS 

Qualified local high school students are permitted, while in high 
school, to attend University classes for college credit. They may also 
enroll for college credit in correspondence and extramural courses 
offered by the University. 

To qualify for high school and on-campus University concurrent 
enrollment, a student must be recommended by his or her high school 
principal and have a 3.5 (A = 4.0) grade-point average. Students are 
assessed tuition at the regular undergraduate nondegree student rates. 

Courses taken by these students involve work over and above the 
secondary school curriculum. Grades and course credits will appear 
on their permanent University records and on official transcripts. If 
these students enter the University after high school graduation, the 
courses, if applicable, will be credited toward University graduation. 

A student applying for on-campus admission under this program 
should be prepared to submit the following materials upon request: 

— A $40 check or money order payable to the University of Illinois, 
for the nonrefundable application fee. 

— A nondegree application for admission to the University (not 
required of students who were previously enrolled under this plan). 

— An official copy of the student's high school transcript covering all 
work completed in high school and courses in progress, together with 
ACT or SAT test score if available. Acceptance under this program 
does not guarantee later acceptance as a degree candidate. 

Information and applications for this program may be obtained 
from the Office of Admissions and Records at the address on the inside 
back cover. A separate undergraduate admission application is re- 
quired if a student desires to attend the University after high school 
graduation or under the Early Admission Program described in the 
next section. 

A student interested in correspondence study should request 
information and an application form as described on page 21. It is 
suggested that students begin correspondence study to coincide with 
the start of a fall or spring semester at the University. Applications 
should be submitted before the beginning of a semester. For the 
summer session, applications should be submitted by the middle of 
May. 

EARLY ADMISSION PROGRAM 

Under the Early Admission Program, a high school student meeting 
competitive admission requirements except receipt of a high school 
diploma may be enrolled in the University after the junior year. This 
may reduce the length of the combined high school and college 
education by one year. Although each application is treated as a 
special admission case, a prospective student must have completed 
his or her junior year in high school, have earned 15 units toward a 
high school diploma, be in good academic standing, be recommended 
by a high school staff member who is able to evaluate the student's 
work, and meet competitive admission standards. Those accepted in 
the program are enrolled in regular four-year curricula and treated as 
first-year students. 

A student interested in this program may apply for admission no 
sooner than January preceding the fall term of planned entry so that 
the application can include complete information about the student's 
fall semester. However, application should be completed as soon as 
possible after January 1 . 

For complete information, contact the Office of Admissions and 
Records at the address on the inside back cover. 

DELAYED ADMISSION 

A person approved for admission may request that the admission be 
delayed for a maximum of one year to allow participation in nonaca- 
demic pursuits. An applicant who wishes to consider this alternative 
should request further information from the Office of Admissions and 
Records at the time that he or she accepts the admission offer since the 
program is limited. 



CONCURRENT ENROLLMENT 



A student in good academic standing at Parkland College or at the 
University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign may concurrently enroll 
in courses offered by the other institution if such courses are not 
available at the student's primary campus. Prior written approval for 
concurrent enrollment must be obtained from the dean of students at 
Parkland College and the concerned college office at the University 
campus. 

A concurrent enrollee is a part-time nondegree student at the 
secondary institution who pays the tuition and fees regularly assessed 
at that institution in accordance with the amount of work taken. The 
application fee is waived. 



STUDY AWAY FROM CAMPUS 



The University permits a student who has been enrolled on campus 
for at least a semester or summer session, with the approval of the 
student's adviser and the appropriate departmental and college of- 
fices, to undertake independent study away from campus either in the 
United States or abroad. 

Colleges and departments may establish variable credit courses 
that permit students, upon payment of an appropriate fee, to continue 
enrollment in the University while studying away from campus. Final 
determination of credit is made by the department and college con- 
cerned. 

Overseas study programs offered by each college are described in 
the individual college sections of this catalog. 

Grading System and Other Regulations 

Academic, administrative, and conduct regulations are published in 
the Code of Policies and Regulations Applying to All Students. Students are 
responsible for complying with these regulations of the University 
and those of the colleges and departments from which they take 
courses. This publication is available to students in the lobby of the 
Turner Student Services Building, in 1 77 Henry Administration Build- 
ing*, and at the Information Desk in the Illini Union. The Code is also 
available on the World Wide Web at http://www.uiuc.edu/ 
admin_manual/code. 



*NOTE: The Office of Admissions and Records expects to move during the fourth 
quarter of 1997 to the following address: 901 West Illinois Street, Urbana, IL 61801. 
Phone numbers published in this catalog for that office will not be affected by the 



GRADING SYSTEM 

Faculty members are responsible for providing the University with an 
individual evaluation of the work of each student in their classes. Final 
course grades are entered on the student's permanent University 
record at the close of each semester, term, or session. The University 
of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign uses the following grading system: 
A = excellent; B = good; C = fair; D = poor (lowest passing grade); F = 
failure, including courses dropped for academic irregularities; Ab = 
absent from the final examination without an acceptable excuse 
(counts as a failure). If a student is absent from a final examination and 
it is clear that taking the examination could not have resulted in a 
passing grade for the course, a grade of F may be given instead of Ab. 
In addition to the above grades, instructors are authorized to assign 
plus and minus grades. 

COMPUTATION OF SCHOLASTIC AVERAGES 

For numerical computation of scholastic averages, the following 
values are designated: A+ = 4.0; A = 4.0; A- = 3.67; B+ = 3.33; B = 3.0; 
C+ = 2.33; C =02.0; C- = 1.67; D+ = 1.33; D = 1.0; D- = 0.67; F =0.0. 

UNIFORM METHOD FOR CALCULATION 

A uniform method for calculating undergraduate grade-point aver- 
ages has been established for all undergraduate colleges on the 
Urbana-Champaign campus. These averages are calculated on the 
basis of all courses attempted for which grades and credits are 
assigned and that carry credit in accordance with the Courses catalog. 
Since courses offered by the religious foundations on or near the 
Urbana-Champaign campus are not official University courses and 
are not included in the Courses catalog, the grades earned in such 
courses will not be included in the calculation of any grade-point 



PROGRAMS OF STUDY 



38 



averages. Grades of S, U, CR, NC, and Pass (see next section on Other 
Symbols in Use) are reported on official University transcripts but are 
not included in grade-point averages since grade-points are not 
assigned to these letter grades. This method of calculation is used to 
determine honors, probation and drop status, financial aid and scho- 
lastic awards, and transfer between colleges on this campus. 

For the purpose of computing a grade-point average for gradua- 
tion, only the grades received in those courses counting toward the 
degree, including grades in repeated courses, are included in the 
average. (See Grade-Point Requirements for the Bachelor's Degree on 
page 40.) 

For the special method used to determine eligibility for transfer 
into the University, refer to the transfer admission policy on page 19. 

OTHER SYMBOLS IN USE (NOT INCLUDED IN THE 
COMPUTATION OF AVERAGES) 

W — Approved withdrawal without credit. 

EX — Temporarily excused. Approved extension of time to complete 
the final examination or other requirements of the course. 
Applies to both undergraduate and graduate students. Entitles 
the student to an examination later without fee, or additional 
time to complete other requirements of the course. (Only the 
dean of the student's college may authorize such an extension 
of time in an individual case. A grade of EX that is not removed 
by the end of the first eight weeks of instruction in the next 
semester in which the student is enrolled in an undergraduate 
college on the Urbana-Champaign campus automatically be- 
comes a grade of F. If the student receiving an excused grade 
does not reenroll on the Urbana-Champaign campus, the ex- 
cused grade, if not removed, becomes an F after one calendar 
year.) 
CR — Credit earned. To be used only in courses taken under the 
credit-no credit grading option. (Instructors report the usual 
letter grades. Grades of A+ through C-will automatically be 
converted to CR.) 
NC — No credit earned. To be used only in courses taken under the 
credit-no credit grading option. (Instructors report the usual 
letter grades. Grades of D, F, and Ab will automatically be 
converted to NC.) 
IP — Course in progress. 

Miss — Missing grade. Instructor has failed to submit a grade for the 
student. 
DF — Grade temporarily deferred. To be used only in those thesis, 
research, and special problems courses extending over more 
than one semester that are taken by graduate students as 
preparation for the thesis and by undergraduate students in 
satisfaction of the requirements for graduation with honors, 
and in other approved courses that extend over more than one 
semester. (Requests for use of the DF grade in courses that 
extend over more than one semester, and therefore require 
postponement of the final grade report, must be submitted in 
writing by the executive officer of the department offering the 
courses to the dean of the appropriate college for concurrence. 
A current list of courses that have received such approval is 
maintained in the Office of Admissions and Records.) 
S — Satisfactory, and 

U — Unsatisfactory. To be used only as final grades in graduate 
thesis research courses, in graduate and undergraduate courses 
given for zero credit, and in other courses that have been 
specifically approved by the head or the chairperson of the 
department concerned, with concurrence of the appropriate 
college dean. A current list of courses that have received such 
approval is maintained in the Office of Admissions and Records. 

Pass — To be used only in courses passed by special or proficiency 
examinations. A minimum grade of C- is required to pass. 

CREDIT-NO CREDIT GRADING OPTION 

The credit-no credit grading option is designed to encourage students 
to explore areas of academic interest that they might otherwise avoid 
for fear of poor grades. All students considering this option are 
cautioned that many graduate and professional schools consider 
applicants whose transcripts bear a significant number of nongrade 
symbols less favorably than those whose transcripts contain none or 
very few. Likewise, in computing a preadmission grade-point aver- 
age, some of these schools may convert the NC symbol into a failing 
grade since they do not know whether the actual grade was a D, F, or 
Ab. 



A full-time undergraduate student in good academic standing 
(not on probation) may, with the approval of his or her adviser, take 
a maximum of two courses each semester under the credit-no credit 
grading option. Part-time students may take one course each semester 
under this option. Summer term 1 and 2 students may take one course 
under the credit-no credit option. 

A maximum of 18 semester hours earned under the credit-no 
credit grading option may be applied toward a baccalaureate degree 
at the Urbana-Champaign campus of the University. A correspon- 
dence course taken on a credit-no credit basis will be included in the 
18-semester-hour credit-no credit limit. 

Any lower- or upper-division course may be chosen under the 
credit-no credit option except courses used to satisfy the University's 
general education requirements, courses designated by name or area 
by the major department for satisfying the major, and those specifi- 
cally required by name by the college for graduation. In cases of 
subsequent change of major, courses previously taken under the 
credit-no credit option in the new field may qualify for meeting major 
requirements. 

For a course taken in residence, undergraduate students must 
exercise the credit-no credit option within the first eight weeks of 
instruction in a semester, during the first four weeks of an eight-week 
course taught in a fall or spring semester, during the first two weeks 
of instruction in the four-week summer term, or during the first four 
weeks of instruction in the eight-week term. Students may elect to 
return to the regular grade option by filing an amended request within 
the first eight weeks of instruction in a semester, within the first four 
weeks of instruction in an eight-week course taught during a semes- 
ter, during the first two weeks of instruction in the four-week summer 
term, or within the first four weeks of instruction in the eight-week 
summer term. The credit-no credit option form must be properly 
approved and deposited in the college office. 

Instructors are not informed of those students in their classes who 
are taking work under the credit-no credit option, and they report the 
usual letter grades at the end of the course. These grades are automati- 
cally converted to CR or NC. Grades of C- or better are required in 
order to earn credit. Credit-no credit courses are not counted toward 
the grade-point average but are included as part of the total credit 
hours. Final grades of CR or NC (for credit or no credit) are recorded 
on the student's permanent academic record and subsequently will 
not be changed to letter grades. 

CLASSIFICATION OF STUDENTS 

Classification of an undergraduate student is made by the Office of 
Admissions and Records based upon the number of credit hours 
earned, which includes credit earned by examination or accepted for 
transfer by the University whether or not such credit is applicable to 
a student's degree program. Classification for registration, certifica- 
tion, and assessment purposes is based on the following scale. 

Freshman standing 0-29.9 hours 
Sophomore standing 30-59.9 hours 

Junior standing 60-89.9 hours 
Senior standing 90 or more hours 

TRANSCRIPTS OF ACADEMIC RECORDS 

Former and currently enrolled students who have paid their Univer- 
sity charges are entitled to receive, upon written request, transcripts 
of their academic records. Upon graduation or withdrawal from the 
University, any student with an outstanding loan is not issued a 
transcript until he or she has completed an exit interview with the 
Office of Student Accounts and Cashiering. Each transcript includes 
a student's entire academic record to date and current academic 
status. Partial transcripts are not issued. 

The charge for an official transcript is $5 per copy. The charge for 
a written certification of enrollment or other data is $4 per copy. The 
charge for additional copies ordered at the same time and sent to the same 
address or picked up is $2 per copy. 

A student who submits an application for direct transfer admis- 
sion to the University of Illinois at Chicago or to the University of 
Illinois at Springfield through the Urbana admissions office, 177 
Henry Administration Building*, will have a transcript included with 
it at no charge. 

Telephone requests for transcripts cannot be honored. Transcripts

are released only by written request to whomever a student or former 
student designates. A written request accompanied by a check or 
money order made payable to the University of Illinois should be sent 
to the Office of Admissions and Records (see the inside back cover for 
address information). 

STUDENT RECORDS POLICY 

It is University policy to comply fully with the Family Educational 
Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 as amended. Guidelines and regula- 
tions for discharge of the University's obligation under this act are 
contained in the Code of Policies and Regulations Applying to All Students, 
available to students at 177 Henry Administration Building* and on 
the World Wide Web (http://www.uiuc.edu/admin_manual/code). 
Under these guidelines: 

— Certain student records may be released only with the prior 
consent of the student. 

— Certain student records can be released with or without the 
student's consent. 

— Under certain conditions, parents may be granted access to a 
student's record with or without the student's consent. 

— A student has the right to inspect his or her educational record. 

— Procedures exist for students to challenge the contents of their 
educational records. 

— The University may release without the student's consent infor- 
mation that appears in student directories and publications that are 
available to the public, except when a currently enrolled student 
requests that the University suppress this information. 

A currently enrolled student may elect to suppress either personal 
information or academic information or both categories of directory 
information. To be effective for a term, a request form must be 
submitted to the Office of Admissions and Records (Window 25, 
Room 100, Henry Administration Building*) by the end of the fifth 
class day of the term. The University will continue to suppress this 
information until the student withdraws the request. 

For former students, directory information includes the student's 
name; date of birth; last known addresses and telephone numbers; 
college, curriculum, and major field of study; dates of attendance and 
full- or part-time status; class level; honors; certificates or degrees 
earned at the University and the date(s) conferred; weight and height 
for athletic team members; participation in officially recognized ac- 
tivities and sports; and institutions previously attended. 



'NOTE: The Office of Admissions and Records expects to move during the fourth 
quarter of 1997 to the following address: 901 West Illinois Street, Urbana, IL 61801. 
Phone numbers published in this catalog for that office will not be affected by the 
move. 

FALSIFICATION OF DOCUMENTS 

Any student who, for purposes of fraud or misrepresentation, falsi- 
fies, forges, defaces, alters, or mutilates in any manner any official 
University document or representation thereof may be subject to 
discipline. Some examples of official documents are identification 
cards, receipts, transcripts of credits, library documents, and petitions 
for change in residence status. Any student who uses computing 
facilities to interfere with computing systems or who uses another 
identification to gain access to computing systems may be subject to 
discipline. 

Any applicant who knowingly withholds information or gives 
false information on an application for admission or readmission may 
become ineligible for admission to the University or may be subject to 
discipline. 

Any student who knowingly withholds information or gives false 
information in any document or materials submitted to any member 
or agent of the University may be subject to discipline. 

IDENTIFICATION CARDS 

Each new student is issued a permanent photo identification card, 
which must be retained by the student while registered at the Univer- 
sity. The ID card remains the property of the University, and any 
student who alters or intentionally mutilates a University ID, who 
uses the ID of another, or who allows his or her own ID card to be used 
by another may be subject to discipline. 



A charge of $20 (amount subject to change) is assessed for replac- 
ing each lost, mutilated, confiscated, or stolen photo ID card. Ques- 
tions regarding the issuance of ID cards may be directed to the 
Campus ID Center, 244-0135. 

STUDENTS IN DEBT TO THE UNIVERSITY 

A penalty of $15 (amount subject to change) is assessed for each check 
students present to the University that is returned for insufficient 
funds or another reason. Additional penalties, including dismissal 
from the University, may be imposed on students who permit their 
University accounts to become delinquent or who issue checks that 
are returned to the University unpaid. 

Students who are in debt to the University at the end of any 
academic term may not be permitted to register in the University 
again. They are not entitled to receive diplomas, official statements, or 
transcripts of credits until the indebtedness has been paid or suitable 
arrangements for payment have been made, unless there are pending 
bankruptcy petitions of the students seeking a discharge of all such 
indebtedness or all such indebtedness has been discharged. 

AUTOMOBILES, MOTORCYCLES, MOTOR SCOOTERS, 
BICYCLES, AND MASS TRANSIT 

All students, their spouses, and dependent children with valid vehicle 
operator permits to operate automobiles, motorcycles, motor scoot- 
ers, and bicycles in Illinois may operate them on the Urbana-Champaign 
campus, provided they comply with University and state regulations. 
Public parking faculties are extremely limited near the campus. Un- 
less students register their cars with the University, there is little 
opportunity for them to park near the campus when classes are in 
session or overnight. By registering their motor vehicles with the 
University (a fee is charged), students may park their vehicles either 
in some University parking lots or on some University streets. A 
permit to park or store a car in University rental lots requires payment 
of an additional fee. Bus service to the University is provided by the 
C-U MTD. For route, schedule, and fare information, call MTD at 384- 
8188. 

Information about the operation of motor vehicles and bicycles by 
students is available from the Division of Campus Parking and 
Transportation, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Room 
201, 1110 West Springfield, Urbana, IL 61801, (217) 333-3530. 

Graduation Requirements 



BACHELOR'S DEGREES AND CERTIFICATES CONFERRED 

A candidate for a bachelor's degree must meet University require- 
ments with respect to registration, residence, general education, and 
English, and the minimum scholarship requirements of the student's 
college or division; must pass the subjects prescribed in his or her 
curriculum; and must conform to the requirements of that curriculum 
in regard to electives and the total number of hours required for 
graduation. 

The Senate Committee on Student Discipline has the right to 
withhold the conferral of a degree. When dismissal from the Univer- 
sity is a possibility because of a disciplinary infraction, the conferral of 
the degree is withheld until the disciplinary action has been resolved.

CERTIFICATES 

Certificates are conferred upon completion of each of the curricula 
listed below. A candidate for a certificate must meet the general 
requirements of the University with respect to registration and mini- 
mum scholarship requirements; successfully complete all prescribed 
subjects and special requirements for the student's curriculum; and 
conform to the requirements regarding electives and hours required

GRADE-POINT REQUIREMENTS FOR THE BACHELOR'S 
DEGREE 

All candidates for a degree must have at least a 2.0 (A = 4.0) grade- 
point average on all University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign 
credits counted for graduation requirements and at least a 2.0 grade- 
point average on the combined transfer and University of Illinois at 
Urbana-Champaign credits counted for graduation requirements. 
Certain colleges have established higher scholastic graduation re- 
quirements for specific curricula. (Grades in courses taken at the other 
campus of the University are counted as transferred.) 

When a course has been repeated, both the original and subse- 
quent grades are included in the average if the course is acceptable 
toward graduation, but the credit is counted only once. An original 
grade is not removed from the student's record for a course subse- 
quently passed by special examination. 

Students who do not meet the requirements stated above may 
graduate if they have the minimum grade-point average calculated by 
either of the following alternative methods: 

— Courses in which grades of D or F have been recorded are excluded, 
not to exceed a total of 10 semester hours completed prior to the last 
30 hours of work completed at the University of Illinois at Urbana- 
Champaign and counted for graduation requirements, or 
— A grade-point average of no less than 2.1 is calculated for the last 60 
semester hours of work counted for graduation requirements and 
completed at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, except 
in those curricula for which a higher scholastic graduation require- 
ment is specified. 

Each college office, on request, will inform students regarding the 
scholarship regulations of that college. 

RESIDENCE REQUIREMENTS FOR GRADUATION 

FIRST BACHELOR'S DEGREE 

In addition to meeting specific course and scholastic requirements, 
each candidate for a bachelor's degree from the University of Illinois 
at Urbana-Champaign must spend either the first three years earning 
not fewer than 90 semester hours or the last year (two semesters, or the 
equivalent) earning not fewer than 30 semester hours in residence at 
the Urbana-Champaign campus, uninterrupted by any work in an- 
other institution. Only those courses that are applicable toward the 
degree sought may be counted in satisfying the above minimum 
requirements. (Either three twelve-week terms or four eight-week 
sessions are the equivalent of two semesters). 

Concurrent attendance at the University of Illinois at Urbana- 
Champaign and another collegiate institution does not interrupt the 
residence requirement for graduation. 

Credit earned through the Advanced Placement Program is in- 
cluded in the first 90 semester hours and is not considered as interrupt- 
ing residence. 

Credit allowed toward graduation for completion of courses of 
study offered by the religious foundations located in Urbana- 
Champaign is not counted as interrupting residence or counted 
toward satisfying minimum residence requirements for graduation. 



GRADUATION REQUIREMENTS 



41 



Attendance at another institution under the Committee on Institu- 
tional Cooperation Program or participation in the University of 
Illinois foreign study programs or the Study Away from Campus 
Programs for which students are registered in Urbana-Champaign 
courses does not interrupt residence, and credits earned through these 
programs are counted as residence credit toward graduation, pro- 
vided that within the last two years of study at least 30 semester hours 
have been earned in courses taken on the Urbana-Champaign cam- 
pus. 

Transfer students from community colleges must, after attaining 
junior standing, earn at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign 
or any other approved four-year institution at least 60 semester hours 
acceptable toward their degrees, in addition to meeting the usual 
residence requirement for degrees from the University of Illinois at 
Urbana-Champaign. 

Students transferring from the University of Illinois at Chicago or 
from the University of Illinois at Springfield to the Urbana-Champaign 
campus as candidates for degrees must satisfy the residence and 
academic requirements for graduation established for the curriculum 
entered on the Urbana-Champaign campus. Since the campuses do 
not have identical academic programs, a student who is contemplat- 
ing a transfer should consult with the college into which he or she 
expects to transfer. 

A student attending as "visitor only" is not considered a "student 
in residence." 

A student who requests that the residence requirement for gradu- 
ation be waived must submit a petition to the dean of his or her college, 
who will take action on the petition. 

A student on drop status may not graduate until he or she has been 
reinstated by the dean of the student's college. A student who meets 
the conditions stated in the first paragraph of this section must notify 
the dean of his or her college of the student/ s intent to apply credit 
earned elsewhere toward the degree requirements and arrange to 
have a final official transcript from the other collegiate institution(s) 
attended sent to the Office of Admissions and Records. 

SECOND BACHELOR'S DEGREE 

A student who has received one bachelor's degree may, with college 
approval, be permitted to receive a second bachelor's degree from the 
University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, provided that all speci- 
fied requirements for both degrees are fully met and that the curricu- 
lum offered for the second degree includes at least the final 30 
semester hours that are earned in residence at the Urbana-Champaign 
campus and not counted for the other degree. 

The second bachelor's degree may be earned either concurrently 
with or subsequent to the first degree. 

A candidate for a second bachelor's degree must meet the same 
residence requirements as for the first degree. 

Only those courses that are acceptable toward the degree sought 
may be counted in satisfying the above minimum requirements. This 
includes the 30 additional hours required for the second degree. 

GENERAL EDUCATION REQUIREMENTS 

Undergraduate education at the University of Illinois at Urbana- 
Champaign includes general education as an essential complement to 
major fields of study. General education uses the theories, concepts, 
and methods of the disciplines to broaden students' understanding 
and appreciation of human thought and achievement — and to pro- 
vide a richer context within which to understand their own special- 
ized fields. The campus general education component is intended to 
help students understand and appreciate diverse areas of scholarship, 
to develop and enhance a wide range of intellectual abilities, and to 
strengthen students' abilities to develop and communicate ideas 
effectively and responsibly. 

The Campus Senate, the faculty General Education Board, and the 
colleges and departments have implemented enhanced general edu- 
cation requirements. Thus, new students should confirm their general 
education requirements by consulting college and departmental of- 
fices, handbooks, or advisers. 

A minimum of six hours each in the humanities, the social sciences, 
and the natural sciences is required for graduation in all undergradu- 
ate curricula. In addition, all students must also fulfill a two-part 
English Composition requirement, a Quantitative Reasoning require- 
ment, and six hours of Cultural Studies (three hours in Western 
Culture and three hours in Non-Western or U.S. Minority Cultures). 



Approved courses should be distributed over at least three years. 
Upon request, the individual colleges will provide students with the 
general education requirements for their curricula and the list of 
courses acceptable for this purpose. 

Students in teacher education programs must consult the Council 
on Teacher Education general education course list when selecting 
their courses to meet general education requirements. All other stu- 
dents should consult their advisors about selecting the general educa- 
tion courses which best fit their programs of study. 

COMPOSITION I AND II REQUIREMENT 

Satisfactory proficiency in the use of English is a requirement for all 
undergraduate degrees awarded at the Urbana-Champaign campus 
of the University. This proficiency will be certified by the fulfillment 
of a two-part requirement identified as Composition I and II. The 
Composition I requirement can be met by the satisfactory completion 
of one of the following courses or course sequences: Rhetoric 101 and 
102; Rhetoric 103 and 104; Rhetoric 105 or 108; or Speech Communica- 
tion 111 and 112 (Verbal Communication). A student with a suffi- 
ciently high score on either the ACT English Subtest or the SAT Verbal 
Test and high performance on a written essay examination may satisfy 
the Composition I requirement for graduation. Students may also 
proficiency the requirement by scoring 4 or 5 on the Advanced 
Placement (AP) Test in language and composition, or on the AP Test 
in literature. 

If the academic credentials of a transfer student do not indicate 
fulfillment of course work equivalent to the University of Illinois's 
Composition I requirement, the student may be administered the 
Rhetoric Placement and Proficiency Examination, the ESL Placement 
Test, or the Transfer Writing Examination. 

Under certain conditions, students may satisfy the Composition I 
requirement for graduation through satisfactory completion of courses 
offered by the Division of English as an International Language. 
Satisfactory completion of courses (ESL 114 and ESL 1 15) satisfies the 
Composition I requirement. Evidence that a student is eligible to 
enroll in these courses is established by a satisfactory score on the ESL 
Placement Test, a test of oral and written English administered by the 
Division of English as an International Language. On the basis of this 
test, the student will be enrolled in the course or courses appropriate 
to his or her English needs. 

If a student's score on the ESL Placement Test is high enough so 
that he or she does not have to take ESL 113, the student is free to take 
either ESL 114 and ESL 115 or Rhetoric 105. If the student chooses to 
do the latter, he or she must take the Rhetoric Placement and Profi- 
ciency Examination offered by the Department of English. 

The Composition II requirement may be met by satisfactory comple- 
tion of any course that has been approved and designated as satisfying 
the demands of the Composition II requirement. The Composition II 
requirement cannot be met by passing a proficiency examination. 

A list of courses that fulfill the Composition II requirement is 
available from departmental and college advising staff, or on the Web 
at http://www.uiuc.edu/providers/provost/gened.html. 

QUANTITATIVE REASONING 

The quantitative reasoning requirement became effective for new 
freshmen entering in fall 1993. The quantitative reasoning require- 
ment applies to courses in the fields of mathematics, computer sci- 
ence, probability and statistics, and formal logic. The various colleges 
and programs of study differ on the specific courses which fulfill this 
requirement; courses which fulfill the campus quantitative reasoning 
requirement may not meet a specific college's requirements (or vice 
versa). Students should contact their college or departmental adviser 
for more information about fulfilling the quantitative reasoning re- 
quirement. 

CULTURAL STUDIES 

Students entering the University in fall 1995 or later need to complete 
the Cultural Studies requirement. This requirement consists of one 
course in Western Culture and one course in Non-Western/U.S. 
Minority Culture, or students may fulfill the requirement by complet- 
ing two courses in Comparative Western /Non- Western Cultures. 

Students opting to take a course approved for Comparative West- 
ern/Non-Western Cultures must complete two comparative courses 
to meet their entire Cultural Studies requirement. Completion of two 
comparative courses will fulfill both the Western and Non-Western 
requirements; completion of just one will fulfill neither. 



PROGRAMS OF STUDY

FOREIGN LANGUAGE COURSES 



Except as prohibited or limited by the established policy of the 
student's college, credit in University foreign language courses taken 
to remove high school entrance deficiencies may, at the discretion of 
the college, be counted in the total hours required for graduation or be 
accepted in partial or complete satisfaction of the foreign language 
requirement for the degree. 

Normally no more than 1 hours of proficiency credit for the study 
of a single foreign language at the elementary and intermediate level 
shall be counted for graduation in the College of Liberal Arts and 
Sciences. Additional credit may be granted for advanced courses 
emphasizing literature and language structure rather than communi- 
cative competence in the language. 

RELIGIOUS FOUNDATION COURSES 

Courses of study offered by the religious foundations located in 
Urbana-Champaign that have been approved by the College of Lib- 
eral Arts and Sciences Committee on Courses and Curricula are 
accepted for credit by the University provided that the student is 
currently registered in University courses. Registration in these courses 
is limited to students of sophomore standing or above who are 
currently registered on campus in University courses and must be 
approved in advance by the dean of the student's college. Grades in 
these courses are not included in the student's all-University scholas- 
tic average, and the courses are not counted as interrupting residence 
or toward satisfying minimum residence requirements for gradua- 
tion. 

A maximum of 10 semester hours of credit in religious foundation 
courses may, with the approval of the dean of the college concerned, 
be counted toward graduation. The College of Liberal Arts and 
Sciences has different restrictions which are given in detail in the LAS 
Student Handbook. 

The above credit limitations and other restrictions apply to reli- 
gious foundation courses only and not to courses offered by the 
University of Illinois Program in Religious Studies. 

CORRESPONDENCE AND EXTRAMURAL COURSES 

After matriculation, a student may count toward his or her degree, 
with the approval of the dean of the student's college, as many as 60 
semester hours of credit earned in extramural and / or correspondence 
study, provided that: 

— The student completes all of the remaining requirements for the 
degree in residence at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, 
or 

— The student presents acceptable residence credit for work done 
elsewhere and completes requirements needed for his or her degree in 
residence at the University. In all cases, the senior year (two semesters 
of not less than 30 semester hours) must be done in residence at the 
University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. 

A student who has completed the first three years in residence at 
the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, earning a minimum 
of 90 semester hours, may do all or part of the senior year in correspon- 
dence or extramural study, subject to meeting all of the requirements 
for the degree. 

Credit for correspondence work taken with fully accredited insti- 
tutions may be allowed, but only on approval of the dean of the 
student's college. 

THESES 

If a thesis is to be submitted in partial fulfillment of the requirements 
for a bachelor's degree, the subject must be announced by the end of 
the sixth week of instruction in the first semester of the student's 
senior year. The work must be done under the direction of a professor 
in the department concerned and must be applicable to the curriculum 
in which a degree is expected. A maximum of 10 hours of credit in 
thesis work may be counted toward a bachelor's degree. 



UNDERGRADUATE CREDIT FOR SERVICE AND 
EDUCATION IN THE ARMED FORCES 

The University grants registered students college credit for certain 
training and experience in the armed forces of the United States. A 
student who completes military service in the U.S. Air Force, Army, 
Marine Corps, Navy, or Coast Guard, including basic or recruit 
training of six months or more, is awarded 4 semester hours of credit 
in basic military science upon presentation of evidence on Form DD- 
214 of honorable discharge or transfer to the reserve component. 

Correspondence courses for which the student has passed the end- 
of -course examination prepared by the U. S. Armed Forces Institute, 
that are baccalaureate-oriented, and that correspond in level and 
content to courses offered at the University of Illinois at Urbana- 
Champaign are recognized for credit. 

Credit recommendations in the Guide to the Evaluation of Education 
Experiences in the Armed Forces (published by the American Council on 
Education) for military service school training will be considered for 
transfer credit as follows: (1) credit will be granted for college-level, 
baccalaureate-oriented training and education, (2) vocational credit 
related to the student's curriculum choice will be referred for consid- 
eration to the dean of the college in which the student is enrolled, and 
(3) duplicate credit will be deleted. Applicability of military credit 
toward a particular degree is determined by the dean of the college. 
Additional information may be obtained from the Office of Admis- 
sions and Records. 

Graduation with Honors 

Recognition for superior academic achievement is given by the Uni- 
versity and by the colleges and departments. 

UNIVERSITY HONORS 

Continuous academic achievement is recognized by inscribing the 
student's name on a Bronze Tablet that hangs on a wall of the Main 
Library. To qualify, an undergraduate student must: 

— Have at least a 3.5 (A = 4.0) cumulative grade-point average for all 
work taken at the University through the academic term prior to 
graduation, and 

— Rank, on the basis of his or her cumulative grade-point average 
(including University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and trans- 
fer work, if any) through the academic term prior to graduation, in 
the top 3 percent of the students in his or her college graduating 
class. 

Transfer students, in addition to meeting the general rules for 
qualification, must satisfy two additional requirements: they must 
have cumulative University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign grade- 
point averages as high as the lowest ones listed for students in their 
colleges who qualify on the basis of having completed all of their work 
at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign; and they must earn 
40 or more semester hours at the University of Illinois at Urbana- 
Champaign through the academic term prior to graduation. 

For the purpose of this award, college graduating class means all 
students receiving bachelor's degrees from the same University of 
Illinois at Urbana-Champaign college between July 1 of each year and 
June 30 of the next. 

For the purpose of this award, academic term prior to graduation 
means: for August graduates, the preceding spring semester; for 
October graduates, the preceding spring semester; for January gradu- 
ates, the preceding summer session; for May graduates, the preceding 
fall semester. The list will be determined each year after grades for the 
fall semester are available. To be considered in the calculation of 
University Honors, all grade corrections must be recorded by the end 
of the eighth week of the spring semester. 

COLLEGE HONORS 

Each college prescribes the conditions under which degree candidates 
may be recommended for graduation with honors. These distinctions 
are noted on students' diplomas, permanent University records, and 
official transcripts of credits. Detailed information concerning the 
requirements for graduation with honors is included in the sections of 
this catalog applying to the individual colleges and departments. 



GRADUATION WITH HONORS 



43 



PHI KAPPA PHI 

The national honor society of Phi Kappa Phi recognizes and encour- 
ages superior scholarship in all academic disciplines. To be eligible, a 
junior (72 to 89 letter-graded hours) must have a minimum cumula- 
tive grade-point average of 3.75 and a scholastic rank in the upper 5 
percent of the junior class; seniors (90 or more letter-graded hours) 
must have a minimum cumulative grade-point average of 3.5 and a 
scholastic rank in the upper 10 percent of the senior class. 

Invitations to membership are mailed to all eligible juniors and 
seniors, and an initiation program is held near the end of each 
semester. 

THE DEAN'S LIST 

The names of undergraduates who have achieved grade-point aver- 
ages for a given semester in the top 20 percent of their college class will 
be included on a list prepared for the dean of the college. (In the 
College of Fine and Applied Arts, the names of eligible undergradu- 
ates who have achieved grade-point averages for a given semester in 
the top 20 percent of all students in their curriculum will be listed.) This 
list is publicized within the University and is sent to news agencies 
throughout the state. Names of James Scholars are preceded by an 
ampersand (&). 

To be eligible for Dean's List recognition, students must complete 
successfully 14 academic semester hours, of which at least 12 must be 
taken for letter grade (A, B, C, D, E, AB). Only grades in hand at the 
time the list is compiled will be considered in determining eligibility 
unless it can be established that the final grade average will be above 
the minimum required regardless of the grade eventually received; 
students with EX, DF, or missing grades will be added as soon as letter 
grades are received and eligibility can be determined. Credits earned 
during the semester through proficiency, CLEP, and advanced place- 
ment examinations may not be counted toward the 14-semester-hour 
requirement. 

Individual colleges may modify the above criteria, and interested 
students should contact their college offices for further information. 

The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences has different eligibility 
requirements, which are given in detail in the LAS Student Handbook. 



Reserve Officers' Training Corps 



NOTE: Students considering enrollment in military science, naval science, or air force 
aerospace studies courses should be aware that University policy prohibits 
discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation; students may enroll in these courses 
regardless of sexual orientation. As of the date of the publication of this catalog, 
students seeking to enroll in ROTC are not asked to disclose their sexual orientation. 
However, homosexual conduct is grounds for disenrollment from the program. 

ARMY ROTC 

Military training has been given at the Urbana-Champaign campus 
since the University opened in 1868. Originally mandatory for all male 
undergraduates under the land-grant charter, the program became 
entirely voluntary in 1 964. Participation in the Army Reserve Officers' 
Training Corps (ROTC) is open to all University students, regardless 
of their academic majors or levels. 

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION 

The Army Reserve Officers' Training Corps is an elective program 
that provides career opportunities, leadership experience, adventure 
training, and financial support to participating students. The program 
is a consecutive series of elective courses and other training, including 
leadership laboratories and field trips designed to prepare young men 
and women for leadership positions as officers in the U. S. Army, 
Army Reserve, and Army National Guard. The leadership principles 
and management techniques presented, however, are equally appli- 
cable to success in any field. Financial support is provided both by 
state, federal, and named scholarships and by a subsistence allowance 
of $150 a month. 

LEADERSHIP TRAINING 

Students' leadership is continuously developed through a Leadership 
Assessment Program (LAP). The LAP evaluates students' leadership 
potential in a variety of leadership roles and provides immediate 
feedback to students. Emphasis is on hands-on leadership experience. 
Cadets plan, organize, and evaluate much of the laboratory and field 
training. 



ADVENTURE TRAINING 

Training in mountaineering techniques (rappelling), land navigation, 
survival, rifle marksmanship, and waterborne operations is given to 
every student. Some students are selected to attend the Army airborne 
school, helicopter operations school, and leadership training with 
active and reserve units. 

FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE SCHOLARSHIPS 

Enrollment in Army ROTC can provide significant financial support 
to interested students, regardless of family financial need. Army 
ROTC offers three financial aid programs that provide support to 
Army ROTC cadets: the Army ROTC Federal Scholarship program, 
the Illinois State ROTC Scholarship program, and the Simultaneous 
Membership Program of the Army ROTC and the National Guard or 
Army Reserve. The federal scholarships are competitive scholarships 
available for college-bound high school juniors and seniors, and 
college freshmen and sophomores. These scholarships provide funds 
for tuition, University fees, books, and $150 a month for four, three, or 
two years, depending on the time of application. Illinois State ROTC 
Scholarships are competitive scholarships that provide full tuition 
waivers for ROTC students who are residents of the state. The Simul- 
taneous Membership Program allows students to join the Army 
Reserve or Army National Guard and also to join Army ROTC. The 
program provides the student with increased reserve forces pay, 
benefits of the new GI Bill, and $150 a month from Army ROTC. 
Engineering students who are enrolled in Army ROTC are eligible for 
other additional financial aid through named scholarships. These 
students should contact the ROTC office for further details. All Army 
ROTC cadets, as a minimum, receive $150 a month for their last two 
years in the program if they meet the requirements for continuing. 

CAREER OPPORTUNITIES 

The training and instruction are designed to prepare students to serve 
as officers in the U.S. Army. This may be full time on active duty, or 
part time with the Army Reserve or National Guard. Service with the 
reserve forces allows pursuit of a civilian career while simultaneously 
serving the country as an officer. Approximately half of Army ROTC 
graduates pursue civilian careers and have discovered that their 
ROTC leadership training is an invaluable tool for success. 

PROGRAM OPTIONS 

1 . Four years — the student attends one military science course each 
semester. 

2. Three and one-half years — the student takes two military science 
courses during the first semester, then one course each semester 
thereafter. 

3. Three years — the student takes two military science courses per 
semester during the first year, then one course each semester 
thereafter. 

4. Two years — those students with prior military experience (junior 
ROTC, prior military service) may receive credit for the first two 
years of Army ROTC and begin with the second two years. Also, 
students who are interested in the program, but who were not 
involved in ROTC during their first two years of college, may join 
during these last two years by attending a six-week camp during 
the summer, for which each student receives more than $600 in 
pay. 

ACADEMIC PROGRAM 

The first- and second-year educational program in military science 
consists of the courses MIL S 111, 113, 121, and 123. These 1-hour 
courses are designed to give students a basic understanding of the 
national defense establishment, the role of the U.S. Army officer, 
principles of military leadership, and military-related skills. 

The third and fourth years of military science, consisting of MIL S 
231, 233, 241, and 243, are designed to develop the skills and attitudes 
vital to assuming leadership positions. 

A leadership laboratory is required with each academic course. 
The leadership laboratory is one and one half hours per week for the 
first two years, two hours per week in the third year, and three hours 
per week during the fourth year. Practical experience is provided in 
military and leadership skills in a framework that provides maximum 
opportunity to develop each student's self-confidence, decisiveness, 
and leadership potential. 

To develop the student's academic diversity, each student must 
demonstrate proficiency or complete a course in math reasoning,

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION 

For additional information regarding any of these programs, contact 
the professor of military science at the University of Illinois at Urbana- 
Champaign, 113 Armory Building, 505 East Armory Street, Cham- 
paign, IL 61820, (217) 333-1550. 

NAVAL ROTC 

The Naval ROTC program is a professional educational opportunity 
in which a student can earn a commission in the U.S. Navy or Marine 
Corps while pursuing a baccalaureate degree. This professional foun- 
dation is then developed and broadened during active service as a 
commissioned officer after graduation and commissioning. A student 
may be enrolled in either the Scholarship Program or the College 
Program (nonscholarship). There are four-year programs for entering 
freshmen and two-year programs for students who have already 
completed part of their college education. 

For scholarship students, no military obligation is incurred until 
the beginning of the sophomore year. College program students incur 
the military obligation at the commencement of the junior year. Naval 
science courses are open to all students, upon consent of the Depart- 
ment of Naval Science, even if they are not enrolled in either of these 
programs. 

FOUR-YEAR NAVY-MARINE SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM 

The Navy-Marine Scholarship Program provides the student with full 
tuition, fees, books, and a tax-free subsistence pay (currently $150 per 
month) for as long as four years. A student in good standing and 
enrolled in a degree program that requires longer than four years to 
complete may apply for fifth-year scholarship benefits with agree- 
ment to serve additional active service after commissioning, or the 
student may take a leave of absence of as long as a year to finish the 
baccalaureate degree. Upon graduation, scholarship students are 
commissioned in the U.S. Navy or U.S. Marine Corps and serve four 
years on active duty. Newly commissioned officers who qualify have 
the opportunity to continue their education toward advanced de- 
grees. 

Scholarship selection in national competition is based on the 
applicant's Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) or American College Test- 
ing (ACT) Program score, high school and college records, aptitude 
for naval service as judged by interviews, and by prescribed physical 
qualifications. 



Scholarship students have an opportunity during the summer to 
practice what they have learned in the classroom. Three summer 
training periods of approximately four to six weeks each are taken by 
students either at sea aboard a U.S. Navy vessel; at a squadron or 
amphibious base, or at a naval air station; or on board a nuclear 
submarine. Students who choose to enter the U.S. Marine Corps spend 
their last summer training period at the Marine Corps Officer Candi- 
date School in Quantico, Virginia. 

FOUR-YEAR NAVY-MARINE COLLEGE PROGRAM 

A Navy-Marine College Program student receives all required uni- 
forms and naval science textbooks while enrolled, and a subsistence 
allowance (currently $150 per month) during the junior and senior 
years. If the degree program requires longer than four years to 
complete, the student may apply for a fifth-year benefit of subsistence 
pay with agreement of additional active service after commissioning 
or may take a leave of absence as long as a year to finish the baccalau- 
reate degree. Upon graduation, the college program student is com- 
missioned in the U.S. Naval or U.S. Marine Corps Reserve and serves 
three of the eight years of reserve obligation on active duty. 

A student may apply for admission to the college program through 
the professor of naval science, who makes the final selection. This 
selection is based on academic, physical, and military aptitude crite- 
ria. College program students also attend one summer at-sea training 
session, usually after the junior year. 

College program students are eligible to be selected for the schol- 
arship program through recommendation of the professor of naval 
science; the decision is made by the chief of naval education and 
training (CNET). These students are also eligible to receive Illinois 
State ROTC scholarships (if residents of this state). These scholarships 
are awarded annually on a competitive basis and cover tuition only. 

TWO-YEAR COLLEGE PROGRAM 

This program provides a student with all required uniforms, naval 
science textbooks, and subsistence pay (currently $150 per month). 
Applicants should have two remaining years of study at the Urbana- 
Champaign campus. During the summer before the junior year, 
students attend a six- week course of military instruction at the Naval 
Science Institute at Newport, Rhode Island. Transportation costs and 
salaries are paid to the students. After successful completion of the 
course, they join their contemporaries in the college program and also 
may be eligible for appointment to scholarship status, depending on 
their backgrounds and academic performances. College program 
students participate in a four-to-six-week summer at-sea training 
period between their junior and senior years, as do their scholarship 
counterparts. Applications must be complete and reach CNET by 15 
March of the sophomore year. Interviewing begins in January of the 
sophomore year. 

TWO-YEAR SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM 

Acceptance into the Naval ROTC Two- Year Scholarship Program 
training option guarantees a student a two-year Naval ROTC scholar- 
ship. Summer training and other benefits, as well as Naval ROTC 
training during the junior and senior years, are the same as those for 
the two-year college program. Prerequisites for this option include at 
least one year of calculus, with a C average or better. A minimum 
grade-point average of 2.5/4.0 is required, with a preferred major of 
mathematics, chemistry, physics, or engineering. Applications must 
be complete and reach CNET by 15 March of the sophomore year. 
Interviewing begins in January of the sophomore year. 

NURSE OPTION 

The Nurse option Scholarship Program provides the student the same 
benefits as four-year scholarship students. Upon graduation, students 
are commissioned in the U.S. Navy Nurse Corps. Nurse option 
students have two specialized four-week summer training periods at 
a major naval hospital and at sea. Only the freshman and senior naval 
science and English composition class requirements are mandatory. 
Graduates must pass their licensing exam within one year.

AIR FORCE ROTC 

The Air Force Reserve Officers' Training Corps at the University of 
Illinois at Urbana-Champaign is an elective program that provides 
professional military training for participating students. The program 
is a consecutive series of elective courses, leadership laboratories, and 
field training experiences designed to prepare young men and women 
for leadership positions as commissioned officers in the U.S. Air Force. 
The curriculum, however, is applicable to success in any field. 

For qualified applicants, Air Force ROTC offers two-, three-, and 
four-year programs leading to a commission as an Air Force officer. 
Three- and four-year program students complete the general military 
course, field training, and the professional officer course. Two-year 
program students complete an extended field training encampment 
and the professional officer course. Financial support is provided both 
by state and federal scholarships and by a subsistence allowance of 
$150 a month. 

Aerospace studies courses are open to all registered students, 
upon consent of the Department of Aerospace Studies, even if they are 
not enrolled in any of these programs and do not wish to pursue a 
commission. 

GENERAL MILITARY COURSE 

The educational program for the first two years in Air Force Aerospace 
Studies consists of AFAS 111, 112, 121, and 122. These 1-hour courses 
are designed to give students basic information on air power history 
and the role of the U.S. Air Force in the defense of the free world. All 
required aerospace studies textbooks and necessary uniforms are 
provided free. The general military course is open to all registered 
students at the University of Illinois without advance application and 
does not obligate students to the Air Force in any way. 

FIELD TRAINING 

Air Force ROTC field training is offered during the summer months 
at selected Air Force bases throughout the United States. Students in 
the four-year program participate in four weeks of field training, 
usually between their sophomore and junior years. Students applying 
for entry into the two-year program must successfully complete six 
weeks of field training prior to enrollment in the professional officer 
course. The Air Force pays all expenses associated with field training. 
The major areas of study in the four-week field training program 
include junior officer training, aircraft and air crew orientation, career 
orientation, survival training, base functions, Air Force environment, 
and physical training. The major areas of study included in the six- 
week field training program are essentially the same as those con- 
ducted at four- week field training plus the general military course and 
leadership laboratories. 

PROFESSIONAL OFFICER COURSE 

The third and fourth years of Air Force aerospace studies instruction, 
consisting of AFAS 231, 232, 241, and 242, are designed to develop 
skills and attitudes vital to the professional officer. Students complet- 
ing the professional officer course are commissioned as officers in the 
U. S. Air Force upon college graduation. All students in the course 
receive a nontaxable subsistence allowance of $150 per month during 
the two-semester academic year. Students wanting to enter the pro- 
gram should apply early in the spring semester of their sophomore 
year in order to begin this course the following fall semester. Final 
selection of students rests with the professor of aerospace studies. 
Each member of the course must: 

— Be a citizen of the United States. 

— Be a full-time student at the University. 

— Have at least two years remaining at the University as an under- 
graduate and /or graduate student upon entry to the program. 

— Pass an Air Force physical examination. 

— Be able to complete all requirements for commissioning before 
reaching age 26V2 for a flying candidate or age 30 for a nonflying 
candidate. 

— Complete summer field training (four-week or six-week). 

— Achieve a qualifying score on the Air Force Officer Qualifying 
Test. 

— Complete Rhetoric 105 or its equivalent and a college-level math- 
ematics course before graduation. 



PROGRAMS OF STUDY 



46 



— Execute a written agreement with the U.S. government to com- 
plete the course, accept a reserve commission in the U.S. Air Force 
upon graduation, and serve four years on active duty after gradu- 
ation. Pilot candidates agree to serve eight years, and navigators six 
vears, on active duty after completion of flying training. 

— Enlist in the Air Force Obligated Reserve Section; this enlistment 
is terminated upon acceptance of a commission. 

— Possess and maintain a quality grade-point average meeting the 
requirements of the student's college. 

— Not be a conscientious objector, nor possess other disqualifying 
characteristics to a commission as established by law or the Depart- 
ment of Defense. Talk with the AFROTC recruiter to see if you 
qualify. 

LEADERSHIP LABORATORY 

The Air Force requires all qualified officer candidates pursuing a 
commission to participate in a leadership laboratory. The leadership 
laboratory is not a University course and no University credit is 
awarded for participation. 

Instruction is conducted within the framework of an organized 
cadet corps with a progression of experiences designed to develop 
each student's leadership potential. The leadership laboratory in- 
volves the study of Air Force customs and courtesies, drill and 
ceremonies, career opportunities, and the life and work of an Air Force 
junior officer. Students develop leadership in a practical, supervised 
laboratory, which typically includes field trips to Air Force installa- 
tions throughout the United States. This laboratory is restricted to 
individuals enrolled in the precommissioning programs only. 

AIR FORCE ROTC COLLEGE SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM 

This program provides scholarships to selected students through

Council on Teacher Education 



1310 South Sixth Street 

Champaign, IL 61820 

Executive Director: 333-2804 

Associate Director/Certification Officer: 333-7195 

Certification Services: 333-7195 

Clinical Experience Services: 333-2804 

Educational Placement Office: 333-0740 

The Council on Teacher Education formulates, modifies, implements, 
and monitors compliance with policies related to the education of 
educators. The council also facilitates communication and promotes 
collaboration among all participants involved in the preparation and 
continuing professional development of educators. It is responsible 
for the coordination of teacher education curricula at the Urbana- 
Champaign campus and serves as the liaison between the campus and 
state certification authorities. 

Six colleges of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign 
offer degree programs in teacher education: the Colleges of Agricul- 
tural, Consumer, and Environmental Sciences, Applied Life Studies, 
Education, Fine and Applied Arts, Liberal Arts and Sciences, and the 
Graduate College. The program for the certification of School Social 
Workers is offered by the School of Social Work. The list of teacher 
education curricula is on page 48. 

Students may consult their teacher education advisers or the 
certification officer for additional information about academic regula- 
tions and other policies affecting teacher education. Consult the 
executive director of the council for information about the Grievance 
Policy and Procedures for Students Enrolled in Certification Programs 
under the Purview of the Council on Teacher Education. 

Requirements 

ADMISSIONS 

Applicants to teacher education curricula must meet the admission 
requirements of the colleges and departments offering the chosen 
curricula. A student whose cumulative grade-point average is less 
than the stated minimum may apply for admission and will be 
considered individually on a petition basis if enrollment vacancies 
exist in the college and curriculum to which the student seeks admis- 
sion. If admitted, the student may be placed on provisional status by 
the Council on Teacher Education for failure to maintain the requisite 
GPA. To be in compliance with recent state legislation, all students 
entering teacher education programs must also demonstrate basic 
proficiency in reading, mathematics, and language arts. 

Applicants are advised that certain felony convictions, enumer- 
ated in Articles 10-21 .9 and 21-23a of the School Code of Illinois, prohibit 
certification or employment in public schools. Questions pertaining to 
this matter should be addressed to the certification officer. 

CONTINUATION IN TEACHER EDUCATION 

To be eligible for continuation in teacher education, candidates must 
have UIUC and cumulative grade-point averages of 2.5 (A = 4.0) or 
higher. In addition, candidates must meet grade-point requirements 
specific to their programs. The Council on Teacher Education reviews 
each student's academic progress every semester. Students who do 
not meet the grade-point average criteria will receive warning letters 
from the council advising them that their entry into student teaching 
and their receiving recommendations for certification from the Uni- 
versity are at risk. Students will be directed to their college deans for 
more information. 

In addition, faculty committees screen students' files before and 
after student teaching to assess the overall record of their performance 
in the program. Teaching effectiveness is influenced not only by 
academic proficiency, but also by the personal characteristics of the 
teacher. Therefore, faculty members take these characteristics into 



COUNCIL ON TEACHER EDUCATION 



47 



account as they evaluate students' progress in the program. Teaching 
effectiveness can also be influenced by the teacher's health. For this 
reason, UIUC provides counseling and medical services for all stu- 
dents. A student wishing additional information about these services 
may call or visit the council office. 

Because it is essential that counseling and medical services be 
offered as soon as the need becomes apparent, teacher education 
advisers and faculty members are asked to recommend for assistance 
or examination any student about whom they feel concern. A student 
who is recommended for assistance or examination will receive a 
written request to make an appointment to discuss the situation. It is 
a requirement of the Council on Teacher Education that a student who 
receives such a request must respond. Failure to do so will jeopardize 
the student's continuation in teacher education. During the appoint- 
ment, the student will be informed of the counseling and medical 
services available at the University. The student's use of these services 
is usually optional. In exceptional cases, however, the council may 
require a student to satisfactorily complete a mental health or physical 
examination with one of the campus services. Students who wish to 
continue in teacher education must comply with such referrals. 

STUDENT TEACHING 

Undergraduate students should apply for student teaching place- 
ment assignments upon completing 55 semester hours of credit. 
Graduate students should consult with their adviser about the timing 
of requests for placement. Student teaching application forms are 
available in the college student teaching office that houses each 
program. (Students may obtain referrals to the appropriate office by 
contacting the council's district liaison.) A student seeking placement 
in student teaching should contact the appropriate college office of 
student teaching no later than the October 1 of the academic year 
preceding the desired placement to determine departmental dead- 
lines and meeting dates. Although departments may set earlier dead- 
lines, the latest date for application will be the last day of classes for the 
fall semester. Students who apply after their departments' deadlines 
cannot be guaranteed a student teaching assignment during the next 
academic year. A student who will not be on campus during the fall 
semester, but who expects to enroll in educational practice (student 
teaching) during the next school year, should secure an application 
form from his or her college's office of student teaching before leaving 
campus. 

On completion of 75 or more semester hours, a student who has 
submitted an application will receive a student teaching assignment 
pending verification that he or she (1) has completed all professional 
education course work and 100 hours of early field experience, (2) has 
UTUC and cumulative grade-point averages of 2.5 (A = 4.0) or higher, 
(3) has the minimum grade-point average required for his or her 
program, and (4) has received a recommendation for placement in 
student teaching from the appropriate faculty committee. 

Only those students officially registered in teacher education 
curricula are eligible for student teaching placements. Students who 
are on academic or disciplinary probation will not be permitted to 
student teach. Graduate students pursuing teacher certification through 
completion of undergraduate program requirements are required to 
petition the council for permission to student teach. The council 
reserves the right to deny student teaching placement to students 
whose performance in course work or in early field experiences has 
been judged to be unsatisfactory by professional standards, including 
scholarship, ethics, and responsibility, as determined by the faculty 
and staff in consultation with cooperating school personnel. Satisfac- 
tory performance is not based solely on grades. Students may also be 
denied a student teaching placement for health reasons. 

Students in teacher education should anticipate and plan for 
student teaching assignments off campus. For most students, addi- 
tional expense will be incurred during the semester in which student 
teaching is scheduled. Students cannot be guaranteed assignments in 
local schools. While attempts will be made to honor such requests, this 
is not always possible because the number of available sites is limited. 

Students are expected to complete all field experiences, including 
student teaching, at UIUC. Under extenuating circumstances, a stu- 
dent who wishes to complete student teaching through another 
university, yet receive a UIUC degree and recommendation for certi- 
fication, must secure the prior approval of his or her adviser, college, 
and the Council on Teacher Education via petition. The petition must 
be supported by verification from the other university that it will 
accept the student as a student teacher and will comply with all 
Council on Teacher Education requirements. Approvals of such ar- 



rangements are infrequent, and students should expect to incur 
additional costs. Consult the executive director or associate director of 
the council for additional information. 

Candidates for certification as administrators or school social 
workers should consult with their advisers regarding procedures for 
clinical placement. 

TEACHER CERTIFICATION 

A student who completes all of the course work and other require- 
ments in a program approved for purposes of certification by the 
Illinois State Board of Education is entitled to receive the recommen- 
dation of the University for the appropriate certificate, provided the 
candidate (1) is a U.S. citizen or legally present and authorized to 
work, is of good character and in good health, and is at least nineteen 
years of age; (2) is recommended for certification by his or her program 
coordinator or department chairperson on the basis of criteria ap- 
proved by the council; (3) has UIUC and cumulative grade-point 
averages of 2.5 (A =4.0) or higher; and (4) has the minimum grade- 
point average required in his or her program. 

In some instances a student may be denied a recommendation for 
certification but be granted a degree by his or her college. A student 
who believes that the recommendation for certification has been 
withheld unjustly may seek redress through the grievance policy 
established by the Council on Teacher Education. A copy of the policy 
and the allied procedures may be obtained from the executive director 
of the council. 

Students who enroll in advanced foreign language, chemistry, or 
mathematics courses as a result of performance on a placement 
examination are often eligible to receive prerequisite credit for teacher 
certification purposes only. A student who is qualified to receive 
prerequisite credit and who has declared one of these areas as his or 
her major or minor should consult his or her teacher education 
adviser. 

GENERAL EDUCATION 

The Council on Teacher Education has adopted a common general 
education core for all undergraduate students pursuing certification 
in secondary (grades six through twelve) and special (grades kinder- 
garten through twelve) programs. Students are required to complete 
the course work specified in the council plan. Courses within the 
teaching major or minor may be used to satisfy general education 
requirements, provided they appear on the council list of approved 
courses, which is available from advisers, college offices, the council 
office, and on the World Wide Web at http://www.ed.uiuc.edu/ 
COE/CTE/courses/index.html. Students should consult with their 
advisers to determine the appropriate course work to satisfy the 
requirements. 

Students in UIUC undergraduate programs leading to secondary 
and special certification will be expected to complete the following 
requirements. 

DISTRIBUTION 

Communication: Composition I, a speech performance course, and an advanced 
composition course (Composition II). The Composition I requirement can be 
satisfied by completing one of the following: RHET 101-102, RHET 103-104, 
RHET 105, RHET 108, SPCOM 111-112, E S L 114-115, or by proficiency credit 
in one of these options. The speech performance requirement can be satisfied 
by using SPCOM 111-112 for Composition I or by completing one of the 
courses listed for speech performance. The Composition II requirement can 
be satisfied by completing one of the courses listed by the campus for 
Composition II.

TEACHER CERTIFICATION TESTS 

All applicants for certification as teachers, school administrators, and 
school service personnel must pass tests mandated by the Illinois State 
Board of Education as a condition for certification. An applicant must 
pass a test in basic skills (reading, writing, grammar, and mathemat- 
ics) and a separate test in his or her major area . For further information, 
contact the certification officer or certification specialist. 

TIME LIMIT ON CERTIFICATION 

Because certification requirements are subject to change as a result of 
new mandates from the Illinois State Teacher Certification Board and 
the Illinois General Assembly, the University is unable to guarantee a 
recommendation for certification to anyone who applies for certifica- 
tion later than one year after graduation from an approved program. 
A student completing an approved program is urged to apply for 
certification during his or her last term on campus. Applications for 
certification are available in the council office. 

BACKGROUND INVESTIGATION OF APPLICANTS FOR 
EMPLOYMENT 

Each applicant for employment in a school district in Illinois is 
required to authorize the employing school district to initiate a crimi- 
nal background check which may include a request for fingerprints. A 
school district may employ a person only after a background check has 
been initiated and may not knowingly employ a person who has been 
convicted of a felony or of attempting to commit certain offenses 
enumerated in The School Code of Illinois. Although the University 
plays no role in this criminal background check, students planning to 
teach in Illinois should be aware of this legislated requirement. 

Special Services

Urbana, IL 61801 

(217) 333-3380 

Situated in one of the world's richest agricultural regions, the College 
of Agricultural, Consumer and Environmental Sciences (ACES) has a 
long history in scholarship, professional education, and career prepa- 
ration in agricultural, food, and human sciences and their relationship 
to natural resources and the environment. As the land-grant agricul- 
tural and human ecology institution for the State of Illinois, the college 
traces its heritage of public service to the enrollment of the first student 
in agriculture at the Illinois Industrial University in 1868. Under- 
graduate students in the college today can choose from 22 curricula 
and numerous study options in seven college departments with more 
than 450 courses available in a broad range of agricultural, human 
ecology, and environment-related disciplines. Several cooperative 
programs with other colleges on campus exist and individualized 
programs of study may be designed to meet the student's particular 
educational needs, academic interests, and career goals. 

Extensive farms, field sites, greenhouses, laboratories and other 
research facilities are located conveniently on the Urbana-Champaign 
campus, affording excellent opportunities for college students to gain 
"hands-on" opportunities with ongoing studies in agriculture, child 
development, dietetics, food processing, and many other fields. The 
college maintains a large collection of books, periodicals, audiovisu- 
al, and other educational resources in its libraries. Microcomputers, 
data-processing equipment, and access to the campus fiber network 
and mainframe computer system are available to enrich and supple- 
ment classroom studies. 

The College of Agricultural, Consumer and Environmental Sci- 
ences is recognized nationally and internationally for its distinguished 
faculty, innovative programs of study, and pioneering achievements 
in teaching, basic and applied research, extension education, and 
international programs. The college will soon complete a major build- 
ing program designed to enhance its position of national leadership in 
the agricultural, human, and environmental sciences. State-of-the-art 
facilities, including those under construction and those completed 
within the past five years, add greatly to the teaching and research 
capabilities of the college, particularly in the challenging new fields of 
biotechnology and genetic engineering. A $30 million Plant and 
Animal Biotechnology Laboratory was dedicated in 1991. A $17.5 
million Animal Sciences Laboratory construction and remodeling 
project was completed in 1993, and extensive remodeling has been 
completed in the Agricultural Bioprocess Laboratory, the National 
Soybean Research Laboratory, and other college facilities. Plans are 
underway to construct a new library, alumni and informational center 
for use by students, faculty, and alumni. 

The College of Agricultural, Consumer and Environmental Sci- 
ences offers career preparation and education in several fields of 
biological, physical, and social sciences. These include agricultural 
communications, agricultural and consumer economics, agricultural 
education, agricultural engineering and technical systems manage- 
ment, agribusiness management, crop sciences, plant protection, 
agroecology, plant biotechnology and molecular biology, animal 
sciences, dietetics, family studies, food science and nutrition, food 
business and hospitality management, forestry, natural resources and 
environmental sciences, horticulture, human and child development, 
marketing of textiles and apparel, and others.

GENERAL EDUCATION 

To appropriately balance specialized with general education aims, the 
UIUC Senate adopted a revised set of general education requirements 
in 1989. The categories currently included in these requirements are 
noted. To date, the English composition requirement, including Com- 
position I and Composition II, the quantitative reasoning I require- 
ment, and the cultural studies requirement have been implemented 
for all students entering the Urbana-Champaign campus of the Uni- 
versity of Illinois. The additional general education categories below 
remain in place from former campus general education guidelines. An 
updated list of approved courses by general education category can be 
found on the World Wide Web at http://www.uiuc.edu/providers/ 
provost / gened .html . 

A. English Composition 

(1) Composition I. This requirement may be fulfilled by the 
satisfactory completion of one of the following selections or 
an equivalent: RHET 105, or RHET 108, or RHET 100 and 
101 in addition to RHET 100 and 102, or RHET 103 and 104, 
orSPCOMlllandll2,orESL114andll5.TheSPCOMlll 
and 112 sequence also fulfills the speech requirement of all 
College of ACES curricula. 

(2) Composition II. This requirement is met by completing

DUAL MAJOR IN AGRICULTURAL ENGINEERING AND IN 
AGRICULTURAL ENGINEERING SCIENCES 

For the Degree of Bachelor of Science and the Degree of 
Bachelor of Science in Agriculture in Agricultural Engineering- 
Agriculture Science 

This is a five-year program that results in a B.S. degree from the 
College of Engineering and a B.S. degree from the College of Agricul- 
tural, Consumer and Environmental Sciences. The 158 hour curricu- 
lum meets the requirements for both degrees. 

Agricultural engineering is the integration of biological and physi- 
cal sciences as a foundation for engineering applications in agricul- 
ture, food systems, natural resources, the environment, and related 
biological systems. Agricultural engineers are involved in the design 
of systems which include food and bioprocess engineering, off-road 
equipment, bioenvironmental engineering of plant and animal facili- 
ties, water quality and systems for the utilization and protection of soil 
and water resources. Important design constraints are economics, 
conservation of materials and energy, safety, and environmental 
quality. Graduates are employed by industry, consulting firms, and 
government for research, education, and manufacturing. By choice of 
electives, a student may direct his or her program toward specializa- 
tion in power and machinery, soil and water, structures and environ- 
ment, electrical power and processing, or to a separate food and 
bioprocess engineering specialization. Individual programs are 
checked by departmental advisers to insure that national engineering 
accreditation (ABET) requirements are met for any chosen specializa- 
tion.

MAJOR IN CROP SCIENCES 

For the Degree of Bachelor of Science in Crop Sciences 

The major in crop sciences is designed for students with an interest in 
agronomic crop plants. There are five options under the crop sciences 
major. Students can study the diversity of crop plants — how they 
grow and are grown — in the crops option. In the plant protection 
option, students learn how to protect plants from the effects of 
diseases, insects, and weeds. The intersection between crop plants and 
their environment is emphasized in the agroecology option. Students 
in the crop agribusiness option learn about crop sciences and about 
agribusiness management. The plant biotechnology and molecular 
biology option is designed for students interested in molecular as- 
pects of crop plants and their interactions with other organisms. In 
each of these options students receive a strong basic grounding in 
science which can lead to employment or, with suitable choice of 
electives, to graduate or professional study.

flict and conflict management in the family. Basic courses in these 
areas are linked to practical experiences in educational and commu- 
nity settings. Such experiences help graduating students to find 
placement in a graduate educational program or employment in areas 
of greatest interest to them, such as child care services, family life 
education, human services, marriage and family counseling, pediatric 
services in hospitals, cooperative extension work, or business activi- 
ties related to children and f amines. Students select one of two options

COMMUNITY HEALTH 

Health Education. The health educator's role is to be instrumental in 
the process of informing, motivating and assisting people to adopt 
and maintain healthful practices, lif estyles, and decision-making skills. 
The undergraduate student develops a knowledge of the relationship 
between community health and education interventions. In general, 
students in health education are interested in direct helping relation- 
ships. It prepares the undergraduate for careers in health promotion 
on local, state, and federal levels, as well as in voluntary health 
agencies, private health clinics, and hospitals. 



Health Planning and Administration. The undergraduate program 
is directed toward developing the student's understanding of factors 
which affect the health of people and the health care delivery process 
in the United States. In general, students in health planning and 
administration have a more focused interest in the business aspects of 
an organization that involve operations management, planning, and 
decision-making. It prepares the undergraduate for entry-level posi- 
tions in the planning and administration of health programs in health 
care facilities and related government agencies and businesses. 

Gerontology. A minor in gerontology is offered for those students 
with a special interest in the aging population and its concomitant 
issues. Requirements can be completed with few additional courses or 
through electives. 

KINESIOLOGY 

Kinesiology is the study of human movement in a range of physical 
activities including athletics, communication, dance, exercise, play, 
rehabilitation, sports, and work. Kinesiology programs focus on the 
study of humans as physically active organisms, with special refer- 
ence to human performance and the development of motor skills 
together with the impact that physical activity has on individuals 
throughout their lives. 

Undergraduate kinesiology programs prepare students for ca- 
reers in such diverse fields as teaching, sales, coaching, fitness and 
wellness, and athletic training. Many students use their undergradu- 
ate training to continue their education at graduate or professional 
schools in physical therapy, medicine, occupational therapy, 
biobehavioral health, law, biomechanics, exercise physiology, sport 
and exercise psychology, motor control, and other related disciplines. 

The department offers programs that may lead to Illinois state 
certification to teach physical education in grades kindergarten through 
twelve, and six through twelve. It offers a teacher education minor in 
physical education, an athletic training emphasis (NATA approved), 
and a sport coaching endorsement. 

LEISURE STUDIES 

Program Management. Prepares students to design, implement, and 
manage leisure service delivery systems. Includes career opportuni- 
ties in public recreation systems, commercial and resort agencies, 
sports management, tourism management, and park and natural 
resource management. 

SPEECH AND HEARING SCIENCE 

The study of speech-language pathology and audiology prepares 
students for entrance into professional training at the graduate level. 
Career opportunities include direct services to individuals with dis- 
abilities, as well as positions in business, research laboratories, gov- 
ernment agencies, and university settings.

strong core integrating management, leisure theory, and research, the 
program allows students to focus on a major market segment within 
the leisure and recreation field by choosing an area of concentration. 
A total of 128 hours is needed for graduation for any student begin- 
ning their degree program on or after spring 1996. For students

AREAS OF CONCENTRATION 



1 . Students are advised to contact the undergraduate academic adviser for the most 
current curriculum information. 

INTERNSHIP PROGRAM 

All students in the Department of Leisure Studies must satisfactorily 
complete the Internship Program prior to graduation. The program is 
designed to augment formal classroom instruction with active expe- 
riential learning under the guidance of an agency-based supervisor. 

The program consists of two courses and a pre-internship field 
experience. The pre-internship program requires students to accumu- 
late a minimum of 300 hours practical work experience in leisure 
service settings. It is strongly recommended that students begin 
acquiring field experiences as early in their academic career as pos- 
sible. Students register for LEIST 280 after achieving junior standing. 
During this semester, students make final arrangements for complet- 
ing LEIST 284 the following semester. 

The practicum is taken after the student achieves senior standing, 
satisfactorily completes LEIST 280, and fulfills the pre-internship field 
experience. LEIST 284 is taken in agencies that are approved and 
contracted for this program. Since a limited number of assignments 
for practicums are available in the campus area, most students look 
forward to the opportunity of an off-campus assignment. 

REQUIREMENTS INCLUDING GENERAL EDUCATION 

The Campus Senate, the faculty General Education Board, and the 
colleges and departments are working to implement enhanced gen- 
eral education requirements. Some changes in requirements are ex- 
pected. Thus, new students should confirm their general education 
requirements by consulting college and departmental offices, hand- 
books, or advisers. Further information about career opportunities in 
leisure studies is available from the director of undergraduate studies 
in 104 Huff Hall, 1206 South Fourth Street, Champaign, IL 61820, (217)

CURRICULUM IN SPEECH AND HEARING SCIENCE 1 

The curriculum in speech and hearing science is a preprofessional 
degree program for those individuals who plan to work as speech- 
language pathologists or audiologists in clinical or school settings. 
The master's degree is the minimum level of academic preparation 
required by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association 
(ASHA) for certification as a speech-language pathologist or as an 
audiologist. The curriculum is designed to prepare students to con- 
tinue their studies and enter professional training at the graduate level 
in any major graduate program in speech-languate pathology or 
audiology. Students who desire certification for work in the public 
schools can fulfill certification requirements by meeting entrance 
requirements for the Graduate College and completing the master of 
arts degree.

Institute of Aviation 



Willard Airport 
One Willard Road 
Savoy, IL 61874 
(217) 244-8601 

The Institute of Aviation is responsible for the promotion and corre- 
lation of education and research activities related to aviation at the 
University. Its director has the advice and assistance of an executive 
committee. The Institute holds Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) 
Airman Examining (Pilot) Agency Certificate Number 1, which per- 
mits it to issue pilot certificates and ratings to its graduates on behalf 
of the FAA. A professional pilot curriculum includes training from the 
private pilot level to the airline-transport pilot level. 

Typically, new freshmen are accepted for admission only for the 
fall semester, but a few students are accepted for the spring semester. 
Transfer to the Institute of Aviation from within the University may be 
accomplished as space permits. 

A graduating Institute student may transfer to any degree-grant- 
ing division of the University to complete requirements for a degree 
in that division. This may require from four to six additional semes- 
ters. A University student outside the Institute of Aviation may elect 
flight courses with the permission of his or her department and the 
permission of the Institute of Aviation. 

Special fees ranging from $1098 to $5,127 are charged for a course 
involving flight training in addition to the estimated costs listed on 
page 24. These fees are subject to change as operating costs change. 

The Institute's Aviation Research Laboratory conducts interdisci- 
plinary research in many areas related to flight. The Institute manages 
Willard Airport, located six miles southwest of the Urbana-Cham- 
paign campus. The airport also provides the University and the 
community with excellent air transportation facilities.

College of Commerce and Business 
Administration 



214 David Kinley Hall 
1407 West Gregory Drive 
Urbana, IL 61801 
(217) 333-2740 

The purpose of the College of Commerce and Business Administra- 
tion is to provide an educational experience that will help students 
develop their potential for leadership and service in business, govern- 
ment, teaching, and research. The undergraduate curricula provide a 
study of the basic aspects of business and preparation for careers in 
fields such as accounting, business management, banking, insurance, 
and marketing. Students should, however, expect to serve apprentice- 
ships in the fields they enter if they aspire to higher positions. 

The curricula, leading to the bachelor of science degrees in the 
various degree programs in business, are based on four years of 
college work. Students are required to elect courses in other colleges 
of the University, including mathematics, rhetoric, humanities and 
the arts, speech, and natural and behavioral sciences, and to secure as 
liberal an education as possible to avoid the narrowing effects of 
overspecialization. Through a cooperative arrangement with the Col- 
lege of Liberal Arts and Sciences, students in that college may major 
in economics or finance. 

The College of Commerce and Business Administration offers 
graduate and professional programs to the student with a bachelor's 
degree in one of the areas of business and economics, or in a nonbusi- 
ness area such as liberal arts, science, or engineering. Detailed infor- 
mation on graduate programs may be obtained from the Graduate 
College. 

Departments and Curricula 



Undergraduate instruction in the College of Commerce and Business 
Administration is organized under the Departments of Accountancy, 
Business Administration, Economics, and Finance. Each of these 
departments offers courses that provide one or more curricula that a 
student may elect. These curricula lead to bachelor of science degrees 
in the various fields of study in the college and are designed to 
encourage each student to develop fully his or her intellectual 
capacity. 

Requirements 



ADMISSION 

Applicants must meet general University requirements as well as 
those specified by the College of Commerce and Business 
Administration. 

Students transferring from other colleges must have achieved 
junior standing and met the requirements specified by the college. 



COLLEGE OF COMMERCE AND BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION

MATHEMATICS PLACEMENT TEST 

Students are required to take the Mathematics Placement Test before 
registering in the college. The results of the test are used to place 
students in MATH 112 or to exempt them from college algebra and 
allow them to enroll in the first course of one of the mathematics 
sequences required for graduation (see below). 

GRADUATION 

Students in the College of Commerce and Business Administration 
who meet the University's requirements with reference to registra- 
tion, residence, and fees and who maintain satisfactory scholastic 
records in the college are awarded degrees appropriate to their 
curricula. 

Each candidate for a degree must have a 2.0 (A = 4.0) grade-point 
average or above for all courses counted toward graduation, a 2.0 
grade-point average or above for all courses taken at this University, 
a 2.0 grade-point average or above for all courses taken in the major or 
field of concentration, and a 2.0 grade-point average or above for 
courses taken in the major or field of concentration at this University. 

Each student may select only one major or field of concentration. 

Students are responsible for meeting the requirements for gradu- 
ation. Therefore, students should familiarize themselves with the 
requirements listed in this catalog and other information in the Office 
of Undergraduate Affairs, 214 David Kinley Hall, and should refer to 
them each time they plan their programs. 

MATHEMATICS REQUIREMENT 

Any one of the sequences described below meets the College of 
Commerce and Business Administration requirement. A new student 
need only select which mathematics sequence to enter. Decisions on 
how far to go in a sequence can be made later as the student gains 
experience and firms up career objectives. 

The most appropriate mathematics sequence depends on the 
student's background, interest, motivation, and objectives. Back- 
ground can be evaluated in terms of mathematics courses already 
completed and the student's score on the Mathematics Placement 
Test. Interest, motivation, and objectives must be determined by the 
student. The four sequences open to the student are 
— MATH 135. This course provides a thorough background in calcu- 
lus for students having a previous analytic geometry course. This 
course or the next sequence should be chosen by students whose 
interests and objectives require strong mathematics. 
— MATH 120 and 130. This sequence is appropriate for those students 
with a good background in mathematics but who have not had 
analytic geometry. Students who feel they may want to take upper- 
level courses in mathematics should take this sequence. 
— MATH 125 and 134. This sequence provides a good background in 
linear algebra and calculus. It is difficult to take upper-level courses in 
mathematics after this sequence. 

— MATH 120 and 125. This is an alternative to the previous sequence. 
It is particularly suitable for those with AP credit in calculus who do 
not plan to take upper-level mathematics courses. 

RESIDENCY 

Students must spend either the first three years, earning not fewer 
than 90 semester hours, or the last year (two semesters, or the equiva- 
lent), earning not fewer than 30 semester hours, in residence on the 
Urbana-Champaign campus, uninterrupted by any work at another 
institution. 

Transfer students from community or junior colleges must, after 
attaining junior standing, earn at the University of Illinois or another 
approved four-year institution at least 60 semester hours acceptable 
toward their degree. 

Special Programs 

HONORS AT GRADUATION 

Honors, designated on diplomas, are awarded to superior students as 
follows: for graduation with honors, a minimum grade-point average 
of 3.5 (A = 4.0) in all courses accepted toward the student's degree; for 
graduation with high honors, a minimum grade-point average of 3.75 
in all courses accepted toward the degree; and for graduation with 
highest honors, a minimum grade-point average of 3.90 in all courses 
accepted toward the degree. To qualify for graduation honors, trans- 
fer students' UIUC and total cumulative grade point averages must 
qualify.

CORE CURRICULUM 

Normally, students must register for not fewer than 12 hours or more 
than 18 hours in each semester. Students should take mathematics, 
economics, and accountancy courses in the semesters indicated in the 
sample schedule of courses. The computer science course must be 
taken during the first year. A required course that is failed must be 
repeated the next semester. 

A student with fewer than 30 hours of credit is required to have his 
or her program for the semester approved by an adviser in the college 
office. 

Up to 4 hours of credit in basic physical education may be counted 
in the 124 hours necessary for graduation. Physical education grades 
are counted in the graduation grade-point average. 

Any course used to fill a specific degree requirement may not be 
taken on the credit-no credit grade option. Only free electives may be 
taken on the credit-no credit option.

CURRICULUM IN ACCOUNTANCY 

For the Degree of Bachelor of Science in Accountancy 

In economically advanced societies, accounting plays an increasingly 
important role. As organizations and societies grow in size and 
complexity, there is a growing need for relevant and reliable quanti- 
tative information about their progress and status. This information is 
an important aid to business managers, investors, and others in (1) 
planning decisions regarding the use of resources (financial, physical, 
and human); (2) controlling decisions regarding actions to accomplish 
the plans; and (3) evaluating decisions regarding the actual perfor- 
mance. The accountant assists in identifying the information appro- 
priate for a particular decision, participates in the accumulation of this 
information, and is responsible for reporting and interpreting it. 
Providing such information is important to those who manage eco- 
nomic activity as well as to those interested in the results. Accountants 
perform this function in both business and nonbusiness organiza- 
tions. 

Closely allied to accounting are the fields of information systems, 
auditing, and taxation. Each field requires additional education. Ac- 
countants who specialize in information systems are concerned with 



the design and control of the systems that provide the information. 
Accountants who specialize in auditing are concerned with verifying 
the propriety of the information and may attest to its reliability in 
reports accompanying those issued by management of their account- 
ability for the use of resources. Accountants who specialize in taxation 
assist in tax planning, return preparation, and the development of 
regulations. These accountants are employed inside organizations, by 
governmental units, and by independent public accounting firms. 

Study in accountancy is offered in seven areas: financial account- 
ing, managerial accounting, international accounting, not-for-profit 
accounting, taxation, information systems, and auditing. Courses are 
available in each of these areas at both the undergraduate and gradu- 
ate levels. 

Minimum requirements for the bachelor of science degree in 
accountancy are ACCY 211, 221, 311, and 331; and three additional 
accountancy courses. One or more acceptable sections of ACCY 199 
totaling three or more hours may count as one of these additional 
courses. Accountancy courses may not be taken on a credit-no credit 
basis unless the degree requirements have been satisfied. A limit of 33 
hours of accountancy courses may be counted toward the bachelor of 
science degree in accountancy. 

CURRICULUM IN BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION 

For the Degree of Bachelor of Science in Business 
Administration 

The Department of Business Administration offers eight separate 
undergraduate concentrations: marketing, organizational adminis- 
tration, production, management science, industrial distribution man- 
agement, management information systems, entrepreneurship, and 
food and agribusiness management. In addition, a new concentration 
in international business is in the approval process. 

Marketing encompasses those business activities directly related 
to the process of placing meaningful assortments of goods and ser- 
vices in the hands of the consumer. The marketing student is con- 
cerned with the efficient performance of marketing activities and with 
their effective coordination with the other operations of the firm. 
Organizational administration is concerned primarily with the effec- 
tive utilization of human resources within the business organization. 
Attention is focused on the organization as a social system and the 
forces that affect this system, such as the behavior of individuals and 
groups, economic conditions, and technology. Production and opera- 
tions management is concerned primarily with the efficient utilization 
of the organization's material resources. Attention is focused on the 
design and improvement of productive capacity and the coordination 
of the productive process with other system activities. The industrial 
distribution management concentration stresses the distribution and 
logistics function in the industrial sector of the economy, with particu- 
lar reference to the industrial distributor. Problems in the manage- 
ment of industrial distribution businesses, both as suppliers to and 
customers of manufacturers and other businesses, receive special 
attention. The concentration in management information systems 
permits students to acquire the skills necessary as systems analysts to 
analyze management's needs for information and identify efficient 
and effective methods to provide management with such informa- 
tion. Such analysts have played an increasingly important role in 
business and government over the past twenty years. Entrepreneur- 
ship is the study of the emerging and rapidly growing firm. It is 
intended for students who hope to start and own their own busi- 
nesses. The concentration in food and agribusiness management 
emphasizes management in one of the most challenging and impor- 
tant sectors in the U.S. and world economies. Food and agribusiness 
executives will need to be trained to apply innovative management 
thinking to deal with technological change, global business ventures, 
and changing food habits and tastes among consumers. 

Requirements for the degree are B ADM 321 — Individual Behavior 
in Organizations, or B ADM 322 — Group Processes in the Organiza- 
tion, or B ADM 323 — Organizational Design and Environment; B

CURRICULUM IN ECONOMICS 

For the Degree of Bachelor of Science in Economics 

Economics has been defined as the study of how people use limited 
resources to produce various goods and services for the unlimited 
material wants of the population. So, the economist is concerned with 
what is produced, how goods and services are distributed, the orga- 
nization of industries, labor supply and its use, international trade, 
production and distribution of national income, government finance, 
and the use and conservation of land and natural resources. 

An economics major, like all CBA majors, first establishes a core of 
knowledge in intermediate economic theory and statistics. The stu- 
dent may then specialize in one of several areas such as taxation and 
government finance, international economics, economic history, la- 
bor economics, economic development, urban and regional econom- 
ics, quantitative economics, or public policy . The economics major can 
alternatively take a general rather than specialized approach to eco- 
nomics. 

An economics major is well prepared for further study in an 
M.B. A. or law program or for graduate work in areas such as econom- 
ics, planning and administration, or policy studies. Career opportuni- 
ties include sales and management positions in business, industry, 
and government; teaching and administrative positions in colleges 
and universities; and research positions in private and public institu- 
tions. 



UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAMS 



80 



Requirements for the degree include ECON 301 plus 12 additional 
hours in economics at the 200- or 300-level (excluding ECON 295 and 
299). Students with interest in further work in economics are advised 
to fulfill the college mathematics requirement with MATH 120 and 
130 or MATH 135, and to take additional training in courses such as 
MATH 242 or 245 and MATH 315. 

Courses used to satisfy a major in economics may not be taken on 
a credit-no credit basis. 

CURRICULUM IN FINANCE 

For the Degree of Bachelor of Science in Finance 

The field of finance is primarily concerned with the acquisition and 
management of funds by business firms, governments, and individu- 
als. A new business, for example, must secure sufficient funds to 
initiate and maintain operations until the cash flow from sales is great 
enough to maintain capital requirements. An established business 
seeks financial advice when considering the purchase of new equip- 
ment, the selection of a new plant location, or the expansion of present 
facilities. Business policy decisions that result in changes in the capital 
structure of the business are of special importance to finance. 

The study of finance is designed to provide the student with both 
the theoretical background and the analytical tools required to make 
effective judgments in finance. Many students select careers in busi- 
ness financial management, commercial and investment banking, 
government finance, insurance, and real estate. 

HOURS REQUIRED COURSES 

3 FIN 300— Financial Markets (Prerequisite: FIN 254; C S 105 or

College of Communications 



119 Gregory Hall 
810 South Wright Street 
Urbana, IL 61801 
(217) 333-2350 

For students with two years of college and a cornmitment to a career 
in communications, the College of Communications offers an addi- 
tional two years of education leading to bachelor of science degrees in 
advertising, in journalism, and in media studies. 

Through its professional programs, the college strives to give 
students in advertising and journalism broad career competence in 
their chosen fields of communications, while ensuring that they 
acquire solid backgrounds in the social sciences and humanities. Its 
premise is that students need an understanding of people and the 
world they live in if they are to communicate effectively through print 
and electronic media. 

Through its non-professional media studies program, the college 
offers students the opportunity to study, analyze, and critique mod- 
ern communications media, again with a firm foundation in the social 
sciences and humanities. 

The college has modern equipment and facilities for teaching 
future communications practitioners — reporting, editing, graphic arts, 
and photojournalism laboratories, in addition to editing studios for 
radio and television production and the new Richmond Journalism 
Teaching Studio. The Communications Library is generally recog- 
nized as one of the best in the nation. The departments of advertising 
and journalism maintain job placement services for their students. 

The college is also the supervising administrative unit for the 
University Broadcasting Division (WILL- AM, -FM, and -TV) and the 
Institute of Communications Research, where the media studies pro- 
gram is administered. 

Instruction in journalism at the University was begun in 1902 as 
part of the course offering in rhetoric and was organized as a division 



COLLEGE OF COMMUNICATIONS 



81 



of the Department of English in 1916. The School of Journalism was 
established in 1927 as a separate unit. In 1950, it became the School of 
Journalism and Communications with divisions of journalism, adver- 
tising, and radio, the last of which later added instruction in television. 
In 1957 the school was elevated to college status, and two years later 
the college's three divisions were redesignated as departments. The 
present name — College of Communications — was adopted in 1968. 

Departments and Curricula 

Through its Departments of Advertising and Journalism, the college, 
which has been accredited by the American Council on Education for 
Journalism and Mass Communication, offers professional education 
in three sequences — advertising, news-editorial journalism, and broad- 
cast journalism. A bachelor of science degree is also offered in media 
studies through the Institute of Communications Research. 

The Department of Advertising supervises work in the advertising 
curriculum for students expecting to enter advertising agencies or the 
advertising departments of companies, communications media, in- 
dustrial organizations, or retail stores. The department aims to edu- 
cate students to become analytical, flexible, and creative professionals 
who are able to deal with current and future advertising challenges. 

The Department of Journalism seeks to prepare students for varied 
and long-term careers in print and electronic journalism. The primary 
professional aim of the news-editorial and broadcast sequences is to 
train students as public affairs reporters by providing them with the 
skills, knowledge, and understanding required for success as journal- 
ists. The department aims to prepare broadly educated professionals 
who will eventually assume decision-making and leadership roles. 

The Institute of Communications Research, through the media 
studies curriculum, gives students concentrated formal academic 
study in the development of the communications media and their 
underlying technologies. 

The Departments of Advertising and Journalism offer graduate 
programs leading to master of science degrees in advertising and in 
journalism. The college offers an interdisciplinary program leading to 
the doctor of philosophy in communications under the direction of the 
Institute of Communications Research. 

Requirements 

ADMISSION 

For admission to the College of Communications, a student must 
complete 60 semester hours of acceptable undergraduate college 
work and present a grade-point average of at least 3.0 (A = 4.0) and 
evidence of interest in the practice and/or study of communications. 
The competitive grade-point average in recent years has been higher. 
Applicants with less than a 3.0 grade-point average may be considered 
if they demonstrate strong motivation and aptitude, provided that 
spaces are available. 

Since they must have junior standing to be eligible to enter the 
College of Communications, students at the University of Illinois at 
Urbana-Champaign are advised to register as freshmen and sopho- 
mores in the prejournalism curriculum of the College of Liberal Arts 
and Sciences and to follow a broad general education program. 
Students at other institutions should follow similar programs. 

Although there is no formal preadvertising or prejournalism pro- 
gram, a strongly recommended program for each college curriculum 
for the first two years is available in the college office. These programs 
include basic courses in economics, English, history, philosophy, 
sociology, and anthropology, as well as courses satisfying the 
University's general education requirements. Students who do not 
have a reasonable degree of typing ability should acquire this skill 
before entering the college, because it is desirable in all curricula. A 
basic knowledge of computer skills is also useful. 

Students at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign should 
make arrangements at the college office to apply for an intra-college 
transfer early in the second semester of their sophomore year. Junior 
standing is necessary for students to take most courses offered by the 
College of Communications. 

Students completing their freshman and sophomore studies at 
institutions other than the University of Illinois are strongly advised 
to defer courses in advertising, journalism, and communications until 
enrolled in the College of Communications. Students must take all of 
their required communications courses in the College of Communica- 



tions. They may be permitted to transfer up to nine hours of elective 
communications courses taken elsewhere, provided that they take an 
equivalent number of additional hours in advanced social studies, 
arts, and sciences beyond the 20 semester hours required for gradua- 
tion from the college. 

The college does not recommend that students with more than 90 
hours enter any of its undergraduate programs. The programs are 
designed for completion within four semesters. In certain cases, it is 
possible to complete the curriculum requirements in three semesters 
if prerequisites in sequential courses can be met. The college does not 
accept a student who has already received a bachelor's degree as a 
candidate for a second bachelor's degree. Instead, it recommends that 
such a student enter one of its graduate programs. 

GRADUATION 

The college offers programs of study leading to bachelor of science 
degrees in advertising, journalism, and in media studies. To meet the 
degree requirements, all students must satisfy general University 
requirements as to registration, residence, scholarship, and fees. They 
also must complete the University general education requirements as 
listed on page 41. All students must also fulfill the following general 
requirements of the College of Communications: 

— Complete a total of 124 semester hours of course credit. Basic 
physical education activity courses and basic courses in military, 
naval, or air force science may not be counted toward this total 
although such credits may be counted toward meeting the admis- 
sion requirement of 60 semester hours. No more than a total of 12 
hours earned in undergraduate open seminars (199 courses), in 
independent study courses outside the college, and in other experi- 
mental courses may be counted toward the degrees offered by the 
college. A student in the college may enroll in one such course for 
a maximum of four hours of credit in any semester with the consent 
of the head of the student's major department. The same policy is 
applied to credit for internships in fields other than communica- 
tions with the additional requirement that such courses must also 
be approved by the dean of the college. While the college encour- 
ages its students to hold internships in the communications field, 
particularly in the summer between the junior and senior years, it 
does not allow academic credit toward the degree for such experi- 
ence alone. Credit granted by other institutions for internships is 
not accepted. 

— Complete not less than 30 hours but not more than 36 hours in 
courses offered by the college in advertising, communications, and 
journalism. Those undergraduate courses cross-listed with adver- 
tising or journalism courses are considered college course offer- 
ings. Undergraduate communications courses cross-listed only 
with departments outside the college are not counted as college 
offerings, except COMM 322. 

— Complete not less than 20 hours in advanced (200- and 300-level) 
courses at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in the 
social studies, arts, and sciences approved by the faculty. The 
human resources and family studies minor may be substituted for 
the requirement of 20 hours in advanced social studies, arts, and 
sciences by advertising and journalism majors. 

— Complete the specific requirements of one of the curricula offered 
by the college, as listed below. 

— Complete 90 hours of credit outside the college, of which 65 hours 
must be taken in the liberal arts and sciences. 

— Earn a grade-point average of 2.0 (A = 4.0) in all courses presented 
for the degree. In addition, students must earn a 2.0 cumulative 
grade-point average for all courses taken while registered in the 
college. 

GENERAL EDUCATION 

To be graduated from the College of Communications, students must 
satisfy the University's general education requirements, which in- 
clude completion of the two-course composition requirement, a Quan- 
titative Reasoning requirement, six hours of Cultural Studies, and a 
minimum of six hours each in the humanities, social sciences, and 
natural sciences. Any substitution of courses must be approved by the 
dean of the college.

TEACHER EDUCATION MINOR IN SECONDARY SCHOOL 
TEACHING 

This minor is a component of the teaching option within the following 
Science and Letters majors: biology, chemistry, English, geology, 
history, mathematics, physics, and speech. For admission to the 
teaching option within those majors, see pages 134. 

Transfer into the teaching option within a major can be made only 
by students who have received approval to complete the minor in 
education. Approval for the minor in education is gained by success- 
ful application to the Department of Curriculum and Instruction in the 
College of Education, upon recommendation by the subject area 
committees of the Council on Teacher Education. 

Two prerequisite courses must be completed before transfer to the 
teaching option in any major: Educational Psychology 211 and Educa- 
tional Policy Studies 201. Additionally, each major stipulates other 
prerequisite courses that must be completed before admission to the 
teaching option. Interested students should see the academic advisers 
in the major for information on prerequisite courses. 

Some students will be able to complete all the prerequisite courses 
for transfer into the teaching option of their major by the Spring of 
their sophomore year; those students may be able to complete the 
requirements for the Bachelor's degree in LAS, as well as the minor in 
education and all other requirements for teacher certification in four 
years. 

Students who establish eligibility to transfer into the teaching 
option of their major in the Spring of their junior year will need five 
years to satisfy the requirements for teacher certification. Those stu- 
dents, however, may be able to petition to count as graduate credit up 
to 15 hours of course credit in excess of the minimum required for the 
Liberal Arts and Sciences Bachelor's degree.

College of Engineering 



Engineering Hall 
1308 West Green Street 
Urbana, IL 61801 
(217) 333-2280 

URL: http://www.engr.uiuc.edu/ 

The College of Engineering prepares men and women for professional 
careers in engineering and related positions in industry, commerce, 
education, and government. The goal is to prepare graduates to begin 
the practice of engineering or to continue their formal education at a 
graduate school of their choice. This preparation enables graduates to 
make significant contributions in their chosen fields while at the same 
time recognizing their responsibilities to society. The curricular pro- 
grams and experiences are intended to instill in students the attitudes, 
values, vision, and training that will prepare them for lifetimes of 
continued learning and leadership in engineering and other fields. 

The college provides training in the mathematical and physical 
sciences and their application to a broad spectrum of technological 
and social requirements of society. The engineering curricula, al- 



UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAMS 



88 



though widely varied and specialized, are built on a general founda- 
tion of scientific theory applicable to many different fields. Work in the 
classroom and laboratory is brought into sharper focus by practical 
problems that the student solves by methods similar to those of 
practicing engineers. Engineering design experience is introduced 
early in the curriculum, is integrated throughout, and culminates in a 
major design project experience in the senior year. 

Although each student pursues a curriculum chosen to meet 
individual career goals, all students take certain common courses. 
Basic courses in mathematics, chemistry, physics, rhetoric, and com- 
puter science are required in the first two years. The scientific and 
technical portion of the majors provides the rudimentary develop- 
ment of technical skills, the engineering method of solving problems 
in practice, an understanding of values and costs, an understanding of 
the ethical characteristics of the engineering profession and practice, 
a sensitivity to the socially related technical problems that confront the 
profession, an understanding of the engineer's responsibility to pro- 
tect occupational and public health and safety, and the ability and 
emphasis for maintaining professional competence through lifelong 
learning. Although the curricula are progressively specialized in the 
third and fourth years, each student is required to take some courses 
outside his or her chosen field. 

Nontechnical courses are included in each curriculum; they may 
be required or elective. Many nontechnical courses satisfy the broad 
objectives of the humanities and social sciences requirements of the 
engineering curricula, thus making the student keenly aware of the 
urgent problems of society and developing a deeper appreciation of 
human cultural achievements. The humanities and social sciences 
courses are usually drawn from the liberal arts and sciences, econom- 
ics, and approved courses in fine and applied arts. A student who 
desires a broader cultural background should consider a combined 
engineering-liberal arts and sciences program; see page 89. 

The Grainger Engineering Library Information Center is a major 
resource center for students in all curricula. State-of-the-art resources 
include a digital imaging lab, computer and multimedia lab, instruc- 
tional services lab, information retrieval research lab, and high-tech 
classrooms. It also contains the reference books, periodicals, catalogs, 
and technical publications that students need constantly and provides 
materials for general reading and private research. 

Departments and Curricula 

The College of Engineering includes the Departments of Aeronautical 
and Astronautical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Computer Science, 
Electrical and Computer Engineering, General Engineering, Materials 
Science and Engineering, Mechanical and Industrial Engineering, 
Nuclear Engineering, Physics, and Theoretical and Applied Mechan- 
ics. The undergraduate curricula described later in this section are 
administered by these units. The work in chemical engineering is 
administered by the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. The curricu- 
lum in agricultural engineering is administered jointly by the College 
of Agricultural, Consumer and Environmental Sciences and the Col- 
lege of Engineering. 

The listing by the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Tech- 
nology of the programs of the College of Engineering, required by the 
Engineering Accreditation Commission, is Aeronautical and Astro- 
nautical Engineering bdC [1950]'; Agricultural Engineering bdC [1950]

Each student entering the College of Engineering declares his or 
her choice of a curriculum. All first-year students follow the common 
program for freshmen shown here. 



Requirements 



"b = bachelor's degree, basic-level accreditation; d = day; C = co-op feature meeting 
special requirements of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology 
criteria 



ENTERING FRESHMAN ADMISSION 

Students seeking admission to the College of Engineering who are 
recent high school graduates or who have earned fewer than 12 
semester hours of credit at other collegiate institutions are classified as 
new freshmen and must meet the entrance requirements to the Col- 
lege of Engineering that are specified for new freshmen. Students are 
admitted to the college on a best-qualified basis as determined by ACT 
composite scores and high school percentile ranks supplied on high 
school transcripts. 

Although new freshmen take a common, or similar, program 
(shown below), they are asked to choose a curriculum in which they 
wish to study. A freshman usually can change the curriculum of study 
during the freshman year. Some restrictions apply when differential 
admission procedures are used. Because the program of study is 
essentially the same for all freshman students, such changes can be 
made without loss of credit toward graduation. 

The advanced Mathematics Placement Test is required of all 
freshman students entering the College of Engineering. They are 
urged to take the examination during the spring testing period before 
enrollment. 

The Chemistry Placement Test is required of all entering freshmen. 
This examination will be used to place a student in a background 
course for engineers, CHEM 1 00, or in the normal begirtriing course for 
engineers, CHEM 101. A student with a superior background in 
chemistry may take the chemistry proficiency test, which, if passed, 
will place the student in CHEM 102 and grant the student 3 hours of 
proficiency credit for CHEM 101; the additional 1 hour must be made 
up as a free elective. A student with advanced placement credit in 
mathematics, chemistry, or physics (see page 32) will receive credit 
toward graduation and will be placed in advanced course work 
consistent with academic preparation.

TRANSFER STUDENT ADMISSION 

The College of Engineering admits qualified transfer students from 
both community and four-year colleges and has worked closely with 
these schools in Illinois to implement coordinated engineering pro- 
grams. 

Students may complete the first two years of study in other 
accredited institutions and transfer to the University of Illinois at 
Urbana-Champaign with little or no loss of credit, provided that they 
follow the proper program. A suggested list of courses that should be 
completed in the first two years before transferring is given below. A 
range of hours is given in each of these course work areas, because the 
major concern is that students have an adequate coverage of basic 
subject matter rather than specific numbers of hours in given areas. 
Ranges are given applicable to both quarter-hour and semester-hour 
systems.

OTHER COURSES 



Social sciences and humanities 



Students should complete as many of the suggested courses as 
possible and select additional courses from those in the Other Courses 
list above to complete full-time study programs. Normally, a student 
will complete all of the suggested courses and 8 to 10 additional 
semester hours of course work. This additional course work may 
include social sciences and humanities electives but could include 
work in computer science or advanced mathematics. 

Before selecting social sciences and humanities electives, students 
should familiarize themselves with the elective requirements of the 
college. A list is available from the Office of the Associate Dean for 
Academic Programs, 207 Engineering Hall. Any student who wants to 
transfer to the college must have a cumulative grade-point average of 
at least 2.6 ( A = 4.0) to apply, but competitive standards for admission 
are usually higher than the 2.6 level. 

Students may transfer to the college for the fall, spring, or summer 
session provided they have met competitive grade-point average 
cutoffs and have completed 60 or more semester hours of work. 
Transfer students are required to have also completed the basic 
mathematics (through calculus), physics, chemistry, and English (rheto- 
ric and composition) sequences in the 60 or more semester hours 
required for transfer. Transfer students starting their studies in the fall 
semester are allowed to advance enroll during the preceding summer. 
Students are informed of this opportunity after they are admitted. 
Questions are invited concerning this procedure. 

A few sophomore-level technical courses may not be offered by 
most community colleges. However, junior-level transfer students 
can usually arrange their programs on the Urbana-Champaign cam- 
pus so that all technical requirements can be completed in a four- 
semester period on this campus if they wish to do so. If the number of 
hours remaining to complete a degree requires more than four semes- 
ters, the student may enroll for an additional summer session or 
semester. 

Students planning to transfer to the College of Engineering are 
encouraged to write to the Office of the Associate Dean for Academic 
Programs, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, 207 Engineer- 
ing Hall, 1308 West Green Street, Urbana, IL 61801, or to the head of 
the department to which they wish to transfer. A student should 
complete all sequences in mathematics, physics, chemistry, and En- 
glish at one institution to maintain proper continuity. In cases where 
this is not possible, a student may enroll in a summer session to make 
up deficiencies. Individual program plans between most transfer 
institutions and the College of Engineering are available upon re- 
quest. 

Transfer students are not required to take freshman guidance 
examinations or any other examinations to qualify for admission to 
the College of Engineering, but all other admission regulations apply 
to them. Transfer students should consult Admission of Transfer 
Applicants on page 19 for general information concerning transfer to 
the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and students from 
community colleges should note especially the rules regarding com- 
munity colleges on page 19. 

GENERAL EDUCATION 

The College of Engineering requires 1 8 hours of humanities and social 
sciences, including a sequence in each. The campus also has require- 
ments that can be satisfied with the structure of the college require- 
ments. Students should consult with the college and department 
offices and their advisors for specific information. 

Special Programs 

COMBINED ENGINEERING-LIBERAL ARTS AND SCIENCES 
PROGRAM 

A five-year program of study permits a student to earn a Bachelor of 
Science degree in a field of engineering from the College of Engineer- 
ing and a Bachelor of Arts or a Bachelor of Science degree from the 
College of Liberal Arts and Sciences at the Urbana-Champaign cam- 
pus. 

This program affords the student the opportunity to prepare for a 
career of an interdisciplinary nature. By selecting an appropriate 
liberal arts and sciences major in combination with the desired engi- 
neering curriculum, it is possible for a student to qualify for new 
careers in industry, business, or government. A student who desires 



a broader background than can be provided in the four-year engineer- 
ing curricula can develop a program that includes a well-rounded 
cultural education in addition to an engineering specialty. Each stu- 
dent must file an approved program with the College of Engineering 
and with the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. 

Advisers in both colleges assist in planning a program of study to 
meet the needs and requirements for both degrees. Most combinations 
of engineering and liberal arts curricula may be completed in ten 
semesters if the student does not have deficiencies in the entrance 
requirements of either college. 

Most engineering curricula can be combined with one of a variety 
of liberal arts and sciences majors including languages, social sciences, 
humanities, speech communication, and philosophy. This combined 
program operates under the following conditions: 

— Students entering the program must meet admission require- 
ments for both colleges. 

— A student who starts in the program and decides to transfer from 
it is subject to the existing graduation requirements of the college 
of his or her choice. 

— The degrees of bachelor of science in engineering and bachelor of 
arts or bachelor of science in liberal arts and sciences are awarded 
simultaneously. No student in the combined program is permitted 
to receive a degree from either college before the completion of the 
entire program. 

— Participants must satisfy the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences 
foreign language graduation requirement. 

— Students electing advanced Reserve Officers' Training Corps and 
Naval ROTC programs are required to meet these commitments in 
addition to the combined program as outlined. 

— Students having 75 or more hours of transfer credit are not advised 
to enter this program, because they cannot ordinarily complete it 
in five years. 

— Students transferring from other colleges and universities must 
plan to complete at least one year in the College of Liberal Arts and 
Sciences at Urbana-Champaign and one year in the College of 
Engineering at Urbana-Champaign to satisfy residency require- 
ments if both degrees are to be granted here. Other students should 
plan to spend a minimum of two years in each college. 

— A student is expected to maintain at least a 2.5 (A = 4.0) grade-point 
average to be accepted or to continue in the program. A higher 
grade-point average may be imposed. 

During the first year, students are enrolled in the common fresh- 
man program for engineers, which is taken in the College of Engineer- 
ing (see page 88). Students are normally enrolled in the College of 
Liberal Arts and Sciences for the second and third years and in the 
College of Engineering for the fourth and fifth years. A typical

AFFILIATIONS WITH OTHER LIBERAL ARTS COLLEGES 

Through a program of affiliation between the College of Engineering 
and a number of liberal arts colleges, a student may enroll in a five- 
year program, earn a bachelor's degree from one of these colleges, and 
at the same time earn a bachelor's degree in engineering from the 
University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. In general, students 
spend the first three years at the liberal arts college and the final two 
years at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. At the time 
of transfer, students must meet competitive transfer admission re- 
quirements. Students must meet certain residency requirements to 
participate in this program. 

The five-year program encourages a student to develop a broad 
understanding of the social sciences and humanities while striving for 
excellence in technical studies. These affiliations have the added 
benefit of allowing students to take preengineering studies at liberal 
arts schools. Students interested in this dual degree program should 
meet with advisers from both schools to develop an individual plan of 
study. 

Colleges actively affiliated with the College of Engineering are: 

Augustana College, Rock Island, Illinois 

Beloit College, Beloit, Wisconsin 

De Paul University, Chicago, Illinois 

Eastern Illinois University, Charleston, Illinois 

Elmhurst College, Elmhurst, Illinois 

Greenville College, Greenville, Illinois

COOPERATIVE ENGINEERING EDUCATION PROGRAM 

A five-year program in cooperative engineering education is available 
to students in all curricula in the college. A student in the program 
alternates periods of attendance at UIUC with periods of employment 
in industry or government. The employment, which is an essential 
element in the educational process, is with the same company each 
work period and is related to the student's field of study. The assign- 
ment increases in difficulty and responsibility with each succeeding 
period off campus. 

Students who wish to participate should apply at the Cooperative 
Engineering Education Office. Job fairs, referrals, and on-campus 
interviews provide employment opportunities. When accepted for 
employment, the student enrolls in the Cooperative Education Pro- 
gram, which retains student status during the employment period. 
Typical schedules and participating employees are shown in a bro- 
chure available from the Cooperative Engineering Education Office, 
University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, 206f Engineering Hall, 
1308 West Green Street, Urbana, IL 61801; telephone (217) 244-4165; 
fax (217) 244-4456; e-mail dickc@uiuc.edu. 



Sophomores, advanced undergraduates, and community college 
transfer students are eligible for the program. Advanced students will 
still require five years to complete the program, but they will have 
fewer off-campus assignments. 

Students enrolled in the cooperative education program are regis- 
tered in the University and are considered to be full-time students for 
the entire five years required by the program. Entries indicating 
participation in the program are entered on the student's official 
transcript. Upon successful completion of the program, the student is 
awarded a certificate signed by the dean of the college and the off- 
campus coordinator and receives the regular diploma awarded for 
completing the degree requirements. 

THESIS 

With the approval of the department concerned, a senior of high 
standing in any curriculum may substitute, for one or more technical 
courses, an investigation of a special subject and write a thesis. 

CURRICULUM MODIFICATION 

A student interested in modifying his or her curriculum may do so by 
checking with his or her department and adviser to determine the 
petition procedure for making a curriculum modification. 

SPECIAL CURRICULA 

Students of high scholastic achievement, with exceptional aptitudes 
and interests in special fields of engineering and their application, 
may be permitted to vary the course content of the standard curricula 
to emphasize some phases not included or not encompassed by the 
usual course substitution and selection of electives. These unwritten 
curricula, however, must include all of the fundamental courses of the 
standard curricula, the variations being made mainly in the so-called 
applicatory portions of the standard curricula of the college. The 
program of study of each student permitted to take such a special 
curriculum must be approved by a committee of the college, in 
consultation with the head of the department in which the student is 
registered and with a faculty member of the college. This faculty 
member automatically becomes the student's adviser in charge of 
registration and other matters pertaining to the approved program. 

ADVANCED ROTC TRAINING COMBINED WITH 
ENGINEERING 

A student in the College of Engineering may elect to participate in the 
Reserve Officers' Training Corps Program and earn a commission in 
the U.S. Army Reserve, Air Force Reserve, or Naval Reserve. A 
commission is awarded simultaneously with the awarding of the 
bachelor of science degree in an engineering field. Participation in 
these programs is limited to students who apply to and are selected by 
the army, air force, and navy units at the University. Monthly stipends 
are paid to those selected for advanced military training. 

These programs require from one to three summer camps or 
cruises and the earning of specified numbers of credits in advanced 
military courses. Credits earned appear in all academic averages 
computed by the College of Engineering. Basic military courses (100- 
level) do not count toward graduation. A maximum of 6 hours of 200- 
level military science courses may be used as free electives. A student 
should plan on taking nine semesters to obtain both a bachelor's 
degree in engineering and a commission in the ROTC program. For 
further information, write directly to the professor of military science, 
the professor of aerospace studies, or the professor of naval science.

Options and Minors 

BIOENGINEERING MINOR 

Bioengineering is a broad, interdisciplinary field that brings together 
engineering, biology, and medicine to create new techniques, devices, 
and understanding of living systems to improve the quality of human 
life. Its practice ranges from the fundamental study of the behavior of 
biological materials at the molecular level to the design of medical 
devices to assist the disabled. 

Any of the existing engineering curricula can provide a good 
foundation for work in bioengineering. However, the engineering 
undergraduate needs additional education in the biologically ori- 
ented sciences to obtain a strong background for bioengineering. With 
such a background, the student should be able to progress rapidly on 
the graduate level in any branch of bioengineering. In industry, the 



COLLEGE OF ENGINEERING

graduate will be competent to handle engineering tasks related to 
biology. 

Students may fulfill the requirements for a minor in bioengineer- 
ing by completing the Bioengineering Core (A or B) and one of the 
course sequences in the following areas of specialization: biomedical 
engineering, biomolecular engineering, bioprocess engineering, cell 
and tissue engineering, and rehabilitation engineering. Depending on 
the area of specialization, 19 to 23 hours are required. To obtain 
recognition for the bioengineering minor, students must register in 
the Office of the Associate Dean for Academic Studies, 207 Engineer- 
ing Hall.

MANUFACTURING ENGINEERING OPTION 

Recent national attention on quality and productivity improvements 
in the manufacturing sector has led to a resurgence of emphasis and 
activity in manufacturing engineering. The demand is increasing for 
engineers who will be qualified to design and operate the factories of 
the future. This field requires the integration of information technol- 



UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAMS 



92 



ogv, materials, and machines. It is believed that no single engineering 
discipline can supply the tvpe of engineer needed for system integra- 
tion. The option in manufacturing engineering provides an opportu- 
nity to engineering students to leam a common language of manufac- 
turing systems engineering. 

This program is intended for engineering students in all major 
disciplines who are interested in manufacturing engineering. The 
option in manufacturing engineering requires a total of 18 semester 
hours of course work. Only a small number of these courses may be 
above and beyond the requirements of the student's regular curricu- 
lum, particularly if the student can make use of technical elective or 
similarly designated hours. 

HOURS REQUIREMENTS 

3 MFG E 210 — Introduction to Manufacturing Systems 

6 Level 2 courses: 

3 MFG E 320— Decision-Making and Control 

Applications in Manufacturing 
3 MFG E 330— Interfacing Methods for 

Manufacturing Systems 
3 MFG E 340 — Processing and Finishing of Materials 

3 MFG E 350 — Information Management for 

Manufacturing Systems 
9 Level 3' courses. In order that the option have some 

coherence, the three courses must be selected from specified 
groups of courses related to the Level 2 courses. 

Courses within a given discipline that are required for completion 
of the bachelor's degree in that discipline may not be used by students 
in that discipline to satisfy the Level 3 course requirements of the 
option. 

It is recommended that one of the Level 3 courses be an indepen- 
dent study project course dealing with an open-ended manufacturing 
design problem. Students enrolled in the project course will apply 
engineering principles and techniques learned from manufacturing- 
related courses and topics covered in their major disciplines in the 
formulation, analysis, and solution of manufacturing design prob- 
lems. 



'Level 3 Courses: Each Level 2 course is supported by approximately twenty to thirty 
Level 3 courses that now exist within the course structures of the various engineering 
departments. These courses provide students with the opportunity to specialize in one 
or more aspects of manufacturing engineering. 

The course of study for a manufacturing option thus provides a 
student with a flexible program that can be tailored to suit the area of 
interest and the major engineering discipline in which the student is 
enrolled. To foster an interdisciplinary learning environment, a set of 
laboratories has been developed. The main laboratory is the Intelli- 
gent Manufacturing Systems Laboratory, which consists of a flexible 
manufacturing cell. 

The director of the program is Professor Shiv G. Kapoor, Depart- 
ment of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering (phone 21 7-333-3432). 
Additional information can be obtained from him or at the Office of 
the Associate Dean for Academic Programs, 207 Engineering Hall.

FOOD AND BIOPROCESS ENGINEERING MINOR 

The food processing industry is the largest manufacturing industry in 
the United States and in the world. Nearly all food products require 
some preservation, processing, storage, and shipping. Preservation 
and processing techniques for foods, pharmaceuticals, and related 
products are becoming increasingly scrutinized to insure safety of the 
products and to increase productivity of the processes. 

Technical developments in the food, pharmaceutical, and related 
processing industries have created a need for professionals with 
training in food and bioprocess engineering. The demand for engi- 
neers with specialized training is increasing as processing techniques 
become more sophisticated and as companies improve their facilities. 

Engineering students interested in developing a background in 
food or bioprocess engineering may pursue a structured program of 
study that will lead to a bachelor's degree in an engineering discipline 
and a minor in food and bioprocess engineering at graduation. This 
program is intended for engineering students in all major disciplines. 
In most cases, courses from the minor can be applied as electives in the 
student's major. 

To receive a minor in food and bioprocess engineering, a student 
must complete the following requirements: 

a. Twelve semester credit hours of required courses. (See Required 
Courses below.) 

b. Four semester credit hours of elective courses. (See Elective 
Courses below.) 

c. An internship at a food, pharmaceutical, or related processing 
company. (See Internship below.) 

d. A bachelor of science degree in the student's chosen field of 
engineering study.

INTERNSHIP 

An internship with a food, pharmaceutical, or related processing 
company is required (ENG 21 0). It is expected that all students making 
satisfactory progress in the minor will have opportunity for employ- 
ment. Assignments will be determined by interviews and contacts 
with company representatives, and students will compete with others 
in the program for specific positions. Each student is required to write 
a paper that summarizes the internship. (Under certain conditions this 
requirement may be replaced by an additional three semester credit 
hours of course work.)

POLYMER SCIENCE AND ENGINEERING MINOR 

Polymer science and engineering is a broad, interdisciplinary field 
that brings together various aspects of chemistry, physics, and engi- 
neering for the understanding, development, and application of the 
materials science of polymers. Many of the existing engineering 
curricula provide a good foundation for work in polymer science and 
engineering. However, the undergraduate student needs additional 
courses specifically dealing with the science and engineering of large 
molecules. With such a background, the student should be able to 
progress rapidly in industry or at the graduate level. In addition to 
those students specifically desiring a career in polymers, this minor 
also can be valuable to students interested in the development, design, 
and application of materials in general. 

The courses listed below have been selected specifically to give an 
undergraduate student a strong background in polymer science and 
engineering. A minimum of eight courses is required, several of which 
the student would normally take to satisfy the requirements of the 
basic degree. To obtain recognition for the polymer science and 
engineering minor, students must register in the Office of the Associ- 
ate Dean for Academic Programs, 207 Engineering Hall. The student 
should also consult with Professor Phillip H. Geil, Department of 
Materials Science and Engineering, 211 Metallurgy and Mining Build- 
ing, when considering the minor and deciding on a program.

International Opportunities 

INTERNATIONAL MINOR IN ENGINEERING 

Many College of Engineering graduates will be involved in interna- 
tional activities during their professional careers. In anticipation of 
such involvement, the college offers an opportunity for students to 
complete an international minor as part of any engineering degree 
program. More than 95 percent of the entering students have had 
foreign language training, and this program allows them to continue 



their studies in related areas. All international minor requirements 
must be satisfied before graduation. To complete the international 
minor, the student must: 

— complete all degree requirements in the student's selected engi- 
neering discipline; 

— complete foreign language studies in a language of the student's 
choice of geographical area (proficiency level will vary with the 
geographical area selected); 

— complete a minimum of 21 hours of cultural and language studies 
related to the geographical area of concentration; 9 hours must be 
other than language credit and include at least one 300-level course; 
— complete a minimum six-weeks residence in the chosen country or 
geographic area, whether it be for work or study. 

The student will be expected to select a specific geographical area 
for concentration, which will be identified in the designation of the 
minor; for example, International Minor — Latin American Studies. 
Course work selected for the minor must be approved by the Interna- 
tional Programs in Engineering office. A list of suggested courses is 
available from that office. 

International Programs in Engineering sponsors both academic 
year, semester, and summer programs, described below, that include 
language and cultural courses and satisfy the residency requirement. 
With sufficient foreign language background before entering engi- 
neering, a student will normally be able to complete the degree in four 
years. Those not having this background, or taking a year of study in 
a foreign institution, may take four and one-half to five years to 
complete their degrees. 

INTERNATIONAL ENGINEERING FELLOWSHIP 

An alumnus of the College of Engineering, Armin Elmendorf, estab- 
lished a fund to encourage engineering students to seek an under- 
standing of the responsibilities of world citizenship. Engineering 
students traveling abroad as part of the educational programs spon- 
sored by the College of Engineering are eligible for other financial aid. 
These funds have certain requirements for qualification. Further 
information about these travel awards may be obtained from the 
International Programs in Engineering office. 

ON-THE-JOB TRAINING IN FOREIGN COUNTRIES 

The International Association for the Exchange of Students for Tech- 
nical Experience (IAESTE) is a private, nonprofit organization that 
enables students of engineering, architecture, and the sciences to 
obtain on-the-job training in foreign countries. Any student, under- 
graduate or graduate, who is enrolled in good standing at the Univer- 
sity and who has completed at least the sophomore year of study may 
apply. Generally, the maintenance allowance is adequate to cover 
living expenses while in training but does not cover transportation 
costs. Further information about these opportunities may be obtained 
from the College of Engineering. 

EXCHANGE SCHOLARSHIPS AT MUNICH AND DARMSTADT, 
GERMANY 

The College of Engineering has exchange scholarships with the Tech- 
nical University in Munich, Germany, and the Technische Hochschule 
Darmstadt in Darmstadt, Germany. Under the terms of the agree- 
ment, two University of Illinois students are given tuition scholar- 
ships at the Technical University in Munich and five are given schol- 
arships at the Technische Hochschule Darmstadt. Stipends to cover 
living expenses for the year are included in the Munich program. 
Students selected by the Technical University in Munich and by the 
Technische Hochschule Darmstadt receive tuition scholarships at the 
University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Equivalent cash stipends 
are awarded to the Munich students. Students are responsible for their 
own transportation expenses. 

To be eligible for study at the Technical University in Munich, a 
student should be enrolled in one of the following curricula: civil 
engineering, electrical engineering, industrial engineering, mechani- 
cal engineering, metallurgical engineering, nuclear engineering, engi- 
neering physics. To be eligible for study at the Technische Hochschule 
Darmstadt, a student should be enrolled in one of the following 
curricula: civil engineering, chemical engineering, mechanical engi- 
neering, physics. Normally, credit earned at these institutions can be 
transferred and used in the student's curriculum at Urbana- 
Champaign. 

To participate in one of the programs, a student must have com- 
pleted GER 104 or the equivalent (additional courses in German are

recommended) and Finished his or her sophomore studies in engi- 
neering at the Urbana-Champaign campus. In addition, the student 
must be an outstanding scholar who will be an excellent representa- 
tive of the University of Illinois and must be a U.S. citizen. 

The programs are under the general administration of the Engi- 
neering College Honors Council, although a recipient need not be an 
honors student if he or she has an outstanding undergraduate record. 

FRENCH EDUCATIONAL EXCHANGE PROGRAMS 

College of Engineering students may participate in the French ex- 
change programs at the following institutions: Institut National 
Polytechnique de Lorraine (INPL), Nancy, and Universite de 
Technologie de Compiegne, Compiegne. Each student should be a 
junior and should have credit for FR 104 or the equivalent, although 
add itional courses in French are recommended . One- or two-semester 
programs are available, with tuition and certain academic-related 
expenses provided. 

The Trois Ecoles program offers engineering students a chance to 
study at one of Paris's Grandes Ecoles: Telecommunications 
(TELECOM), Electricite (SUPELEC), or Techniques Avancees (ENSTA). 
These institutions emphasize electrical and computer engineering, 
but courses are also offered in chemical, industrial, and mechanical 
engineering and computer science. Students with junior- or senior- 
level standing and advanced French-language skills can select the 
institution that specializes in an area of interest. These programs offer 
students the opportunity to live among French students, experience 
European culture, and improve language skills for a semester or 
academic year. 

SUMMER EXCHANGE PROGRAMS IN ARGENTINA, BRAZIL, 
CHILE, CHINA, FRANCE, JAPAN, AND RUSSIA 

To introduce College of Engineering students to other cultures and 
languages, summer programs were developed with different institu- 
tions in these countries. These opportunities are designed mainly to 
enable students to learn about the people of these countries during a 
six-week period, to study the language, and to work in a limited way 
with technology. Travel to interesting places is included in a few of 
these programs. Credit courses in the appropriate language are re- 
quired in the spring semester before departure. Lodging and meals are 
included in the exchange fee. 

OTHER STUDY ABROAD EXCHANGE PROGRAMS 

Many exchange programs are available for engineering students on 
this campus with educational institutions throughout the world. The 
College of Engineering works closely with the Study Abroad Office in 
developing programs of study in which course credits can be trans- 
ferred to this campus. Further information about these and other 
programs may be obtained from the International Programs in Engi- 
neering office, 221 Engineering Hall, or http: / /coe-info.cen.uiuc.edu/ 
international/ or e-mail ipeng@uiuc.edu. 

Honors Programs 

HONORS AT GRADUATION 

Honors awarded at graduation to superior students are designated on 
the diploma as honors, high honors, or highest honors. A student 
receives honors with a cumulative University of Illinois grade-point 
average of at least 3.5, and high honors with at least a 3.8 grade-point 
average at graduation (A = 4.0). Highest honors may be awarded to 
any student eligible for high honors upon recommendation of his or 
her department. The criteria used by departments in selecting indi- 
viduals for highest honors recognition include outstanding perfor- 
mance in course work and in supplementary activities of an academic 
or professional nature. Ordinarily, such a citation requires completion 
of an undergraduate thesis or a special project of superior quality. 

TAU BETA PI 

Tau Beta Pi is a national engineering honor society that recognizes 
students, alumni, and engineers for outstanding academic acliieve- 
ments and exemplary character. The Alpha chapter at the University 
of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign was founded in 1897 and is the fifth 
oldest chapter of Tau Beta Pi. In addition to gaining scholastic recog- 
nition, members participate in a range of activities that serve the 
chapter, the College of Engineering, and the community. The scholas- 
tic requirement for membership in Tau Beta Pi is that juniors must be 
in the upper one-eighth of their graduating class and seniors must be 
in the upper one-fifth of their graduating class. 



EDMUND j. JAMES SCHOLARS 

The honors program in engineering is part of the University's James 
Scholar program, which was established to recognize and develop the 
talents of academically outstanding students. Engineering students in 
this program are known as "James Scholars in Engineering." Each is 
assigned to an honors adviser and receives special consideration in the 
selection of a course program to meet specific needs. Students may 
apply for the program during summer advance enrollment or at the 
beginning of any semester. 

Freshmen in the College of Engineering are eligible to enter the 
program with an ACT composite score of 3.3 or higher or equivalent 
SAT score. Continuation in the program or joining as an upperclass 
student requires a minimum 2.3 GPA and the development and 
approval of an honors contract, which is a coherent plan of special 
academic work. Details are available from the Office of the Associate 
Dean for Academic Programs. 

Good standing in the James Scholar program at graduation re- 
quires participation in special honors work for a majority of the 
semesters in which a student is in residence. 

DEAN'S LIST 

See the reference to the Dean's List on page 43. 

Electives 



HUMANITIES AND SOCIAL SCIENCES ELECTIVES 

Eighteen hours of humanities and social sciences are required (in 
addition to rhetoric), including one sequence in the humanities and 
one sequence in the social sciences. The two sequences cannot be in the 
same department. A sequence is defined as any combination of at least 
six hours of approved courses taught by a single nonengineering 
department or any of the interdisciplinary sequences. Additional 
courses to complete the 18 hours must also be drawn from the list of 
approved courses. Six hours of social sciences and six hours of 
humanities must be taken for grade. The remaining six hours of social 
sciences or humanities may be taken credit /no credit and may be used 
to meet sequence requirements. This list is available from advisers or 
from the Office of the Associate Dean for Academic Programs. All 
seminars (including 199), honors courses, thesis courses, and indi- 
vidual study are excluded except as specifically approved. 

Students entering in fall 1 994 or later are also required to satisfy the 
campus general education requirements. More information about this 
requirement is available in the Office of the Associate Dean for 
Academic Programs and from the worldwide web site http:// 
www.uiuc.edu/colleges/provost/gened.html. 

Students may obtain credit from different academic sources, i.e., 
residential instruction, College-Level Examination Program tests, 
advanced placement tests, and transfer credits. Credit in any specific 
subject may be used toward degree requirements only once. Because 
of the variety of sources available for social sciences and humanities 
electives, students may receive duplicate credit in specific courses, 
such as American history. Students should be aware that such dupli- 
cation cannot be used toward degree requirements. 

TECHNICAL ELECTIVES 

Each engineering curriculum offers some elective opportunities, which 
may be specified as technical or nontechnical. All technical elective 
courses must be selected in accordance with departmental require- 
ments. 

Technical electives generally include 200- and 300-level courses in 
engineering, mathematics, and the natural sciences. 

FREE ELECTIVES 

These electives are selected at the prerogative of the student except as 
noted below. 

Credit will not be allowed for courses of a remedial nature, such as 
mathematics below analytic geometry or basic military training. No 
more than 3 semester hours of physical education course work (basic 
level, i.e., activity courses) may be used as free electives nor may they 
be applied toward degree requirements. No more than 4 hours of 
religious foundation courses or 6 hours of advanced military science 
courses may be used as free electives. 

Total transfer credit in required basic courses in mathematics 
(through integral calculus), physics, rhetoric, freshman chemistry, 
computer science, and engineering graphics may be used for free 
electives only if the credit covers topics beyond those in equivalent 
courses at UIUC. Further restrictions on the acceptance of transfer 



COLLEGE OF ENGINEERING 



95 



credit for free electives may be imposed by the departments with the 
approval of the associate dean for academic programs. 

CREDIT-NO CREDIT OPTION 

The credit-no credit grade option is available for students who want 
to explore areas of academic interest that they might otherwise avoid 
for fear of poor grades. All students considering this option are 
cautioned that many graduate and professional schools consider 
applicants whose transcripts bear a significant number of nongrade 
symbols less favorably than those whose transcripts contain none or 
very few. Conditions under which students may take courses on a 
credit-no credit basis are outlined in the booklet Code on Campus Affairs 
and Handbook of Policies and Regulations Applying to All Students, which 
is distributed to all students. Required courses in the College of 
Engineering may not be taken on this basis.

For the Degree of Bachelor of Science in Aeronautical and 
Astronautical Engineering 

The objective of the aeronautical and astronautical engineering cur- 
riculum is to instill in students the knowledge, values, and leadership 
in engineering that will prepare them for lifetimes of continued 
learning and growth in the profession and in a broad spectrum of 
other fields. This curriculum provides a strong fundamental back- 
ground in the engineering and applied sciences and their applications 
to the design of aircraft and spacecraft. The concepts of system design, 
which originated in the aerospace industry, are introduced in the 
freshman year, developed further in the sophomore and junior years, 
and reinforced and polished in the year-long senior capstone design 
experience (AAE 240, 241) in which the students respond to a design 
problem (an RFP) from industry, government, or one of the profes- 
sional engineering societies. As many as 15 hours of free and technical 
electives allow the student to pursue a diversified or a specialized 
program of study. 

The curriculum requires 134 hours for graduation.

For the Degree of Bachelor of Science in Agricultural 
Engineering 

Agricultural engineering is the integration of biological and physical 
sciences as a foundation for engineering applications in agriculture, 
food systems, natural resources, the environment, and related biologi- 
cal systems. The goals of the program are to prepare men and women 
for professional careers in engineering practice or related positions in 
education and government. 

Design experience begins in the freshman year and is integrated 
throughout the curriculum in the lectures, discussions, homework, 
and lab assignments of many of the courses dealing with engineering 
topics. Agricultural engineers are involved in the design of systems 
that include food and bioprocess engineering, off-road equipment, 
bioenvironmental engineering of plant and animal facilities, water 
quality, and systems for the use and protection of soil and water 
resources. Important design constraints are economics, conservation

of materials and energy, safety, and environmental quality. All stu- 
dents complete a major design project in the senior year that draws 
comprehensively on the knowledge gained in the foundational courses. 

Graduates are employed by industry, consulting firms, and gov- 
ernment for research, education, and manufacturing. All graduates 
obtain a four-year ABET-accredited bachelor of science degree from 
the College of Engineering and, in an optional five-year program, may 
receive a second bachelor of science degree in agricultural engineering 
sciences from the College of Agricultural, Consumer, and Environ- 
mental Sciences. By choice of electives, a student may direct his or her 
program toward specialization in power and machinery, soil and 
water, structures and environment, or electric power and processing 
or to a separate food and bioprocess engineering specialization. 
Individual programs are checked by departmental advisers to ensure 
that Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology require- 
ments are met for any chosen specialization. 

The curriculum requires 128 hours for gradation except for the 
specialization in food and bioprocess engineering, which requires 132 
hours for graduation.

SPECIALIZATION IN FOOD AND BIOPROCESS ENGINEERING 

Food and bioprocess engineering is the application of engineering 
principles to produce, preserve, process, package, and distribute 
foods. Food and bioprocess engineers develop, design, and construct 
new machinery, processes, and plants; they develop and test new 
products; they preserve and distribute foods; and they manage envi- 
ronmental factors, waste products, and energy. Food and bioprocess 
engineers participate in nearly every phase of food processing. Gradu- 
ates are prepared for positions in a variety of industries, including 
food, pharmaceutical, and biotechnology industries. Job opportuni- 
ties also exist with the government, universities, and consulting firms. 
Career possiblities include research and development; project, pro- 
cess, and plant engineering, which can include design, optimization, 
and construction; technical sales and service; and supervision and 
management. Those who continue their education in graduate school 
will have a strong background for further study in the sciences or 
engineering.

For the Degree of Bachelor of Science in Ceramic Engineering 

The program in ceramic engineering is administered by and is part of 
the Department of Materials Science and Engineering. The ceramic 
engineering curriculum prepares students for professional careers or 
further study in fields dealing with materials — their properties, be- 
havior, and applications. Some of the ceramic products originate with 
naturally occurring minerals, while others require the synthesis of 
specific compounds to obtain the desired properties. Major industries 
such as electronics, steel, glass, aerospace, and construction depend 
heavily upon ceramic materials and their unique properties, espe- 
cially - at high temperatures. 

The ceramic engineering curriculum provides a strong background 
in engineering applied science with emphasis on ceramic materials. 
The interrelationships between the structure, processing, and proper- 
ties of materials and their applications in the design of ceramic 
materials and industrial processes are taught throughout the curricu- 
lum. Students apply basic science to solve engineering problems, 
culminating in a required comprehensive design course (CER E/ 
MATSE 322) in the senior year. Several design-oriented electives are 
available. Choice of electives allows the student to place greater 
emphasis on topics such as glass, electronics, biomaterials, or high- 
temperature materials. 

The curriculum requires 128 hours for graduation.

TECHNICAL ELECTIVES 

Civil engineering core courses and technical electives. 

Technical electives must be selected from departmentally 
approved lists and be in accordance with guidelines established 
by the department in each of the following two categories. 
Primary Area of Emphasis: Selected from among the courses 
offered in one of the technical specialty areas in which 
instruction is offered in this department (see the following 
listing). 

Secondary Area of Emphasis: Selected from some technical 
area other than the student's primary area of emphasis. The 
secondary emphasis area is commonly another technical 
specialty in civil engineering; students may broaden their basic 
interests and competencies by selecting secondary areas that 
are outside of civil engineering but that relate to and support 
their areas of primary interests. 

It is further required that the courses selected as technical electives, together 
with those chosen as civil engineering core courses, satisfy the following 
minimum engineering design content criteria: 

HOURS 

16 Cumulative engineering design content in each student's 

program, where the number of hours of design content in each 
civil engineering course are specified by the department in 
listings of course contents. 

Each student must complete at least one course that requires 
completion by the student of an integrated design project. The 
courses that meet this criterion are determined by the 
department faculty and are identified in the Civil Engineering 
Undergraduate Student Handbook. 

Explicit guidelines for the selection of technical electives in primary and secondary 
categories, together with suggested courses in each of the available technical 
specialty areas in civil engineering, are published by the department in the Civil 
Engineering Undergraduate Student Handbook.

PURPOSE 

The computer engineering curriculum, which is administered by the 
Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE), stresses 
scientific principles, rigorous analysis, creative design, clear commu- 
nication, and responsible teamwork. Students will gain the funda- 
mental knowledge, practical skills, professional attitudes, and experi- 
ences that provide a broad foundation for further learning during 
productive careers in computer engineering. In consultation with 
their faculty advisors, students choose electives to prepare for imme- 
diate employment, graduate study, or both. While the course of study 
is designed primarily to prepare students for careers closely allied 
with computer engineering, it also provides a valuable understanding 
of science and technology for those who will pursue careers in other 
professions. The curriculum also meets the requirements of the Ac- 
creditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET).

THE IMPORTANCE OF THE FIRST YEAR ECE EXPERIENCE 

First vear students take ECE 110, Introduction to Electrical and Com- 
puter Engineering, a four credit hour class combining theory, labora- 
tory measurement, and design. Not only do beginning students get a 
substantive course in their major, they also gain a better appreciation 
for the basic science and mathematics courses that are taken during 
the first two vears of study. Students gain first hand experience in the 
activities of a professional computer engineer and are better able to 
make the important decision as to whether they have chosen the major 
best suited to them. 

INTELLECTUAL CONTENT OF THE COMPUTER 
ENGINEERING CURRICULUM 

Student involvement in the computer engineering discipline increases 
during each year of the program. Most of the core computer engineer- 
ing courses are taken in the fourth, fifth, and sixth semesters. During 
the last two semesters, the student chooses electives so as to define a 
curriculum meeting specific educational and career needs. 

The computer engineeering core curriculum focuses on funda- 
mental computer engineering knowledge: circuits (ECE 110), systems 
(ECE 210), electromagnetics (ECE 229), computer engineering (ECE 
249, ECE 290, ECE 291, ECE 312), solid state electronics (ECE 340) and 
computer science (CS125,CS223,CS225). The rich set of ECE elective 
courses permits students to concentrate in any subdiscipline of com- 
puter engineering including: computer systems, electronic circuits, 
software, theory, computer networks, artificial intelligence and robot- 
ics, and engineering applications. 

METHODS OF INSTRUCTION AND DESIGN EXPERIENCE 

Instruction is given using a combination of lecture, discussion, labo- 
ratory, and project methodologies of the highest quality. The large 
number of laboratory courses and superb access to advanced com- 
puter facilities provide excellent practical experience in the field. 
Engineering design, communication, and teamwork are integrated 
throughout the curriculum, including the beginning required courses 
Introduction to Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE 110) and 
Introduction to Computer Engineering (ECE 290), as well as Com- 
puter Engineering II (ECE 291 ), Digital Systems Laboratory (ECE 249) 
and Computer Organization and Design (ECE 312), which are taken 
in the third year. Further design experiences occur in the elective 
courses. 

HONORS ACTIVITY 

Students wishing to do honors work are encouraged to apply to the 
James Scholar Program administered jointly by the College of Engi- 
neering and the ECE Department. In consultation with departmental 
honors advisors, students create and carry out honors activity con- 
tracts. They must also participate in the ECE Honors Seminar and are 
encouraged to participate in the yearly Undergraduate Honors Sym- 
posium. The department offers thesis courses and project opportuni- 
ties for students wishing to graduate with Highest Honors. 

GRADE-POINT AVERAGE REQUIREMENTS 

A student must have a grade-point average of at least 2.0 (A=4.0) in 
ECE courses in order to remain in good standing and to graduate. To 
qualify for registration for the ECE courses shown in the third year of 
the curriculum, a student must have completed, with a combined 2.25 
grade-point average, the mathematics, physics, computer science, 
and electrical and computer engineering courses shown in the first 
two years.

For the Degree of Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering 

PURPOSE 

The electrical engineering curriculum, which is administered by the 
Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE), stresses 
scientific principles, rigorous analysis, creative design, clear commu- 
nication, and responsible teamwork. Students will gain the funda- 
mental knowledge, practical skills, professional attitudes, and experi- 
ences that provide a broad foundation for further learning during 
productive careers in electrical engineering. In consultation with their 
faculty advisors, students choose electives to prepare for immediate 
employment, graduate study, or both. While the course of study is 
designed primarily to prepare students for careers closely allied with 
electrical engineering, it also provides a valuable understanding of 
science and technology for those who will pursue careers in law, 
medicine, commerce, and other professions. The curriculum also 
meets the requirements of the Accreditation Board for Engineering 
and Technology (ABET). 



COLLEGE OF ENGINEERING

THE IMPORTANCE OF THE FIRST YEAR ECE EXPERIENCE 

First year students take ECE 110, Introduction to Electrical and Com- 
puter Engineering, a four-credit hour class combining theory, labora- 
tory measurement, and design. Not only do beginning students get a 
substantive course in their major, they also gain a better appreciation 
for the basic science and mathematics courses that are taken during 
the first two years of study. Students gain first-hand experience in the 
activities of a professional electrical engineer and are better able to 
make the important decision as to whether they have chosen the major 
best suited to them. 

INTELLECTUAL CONTENT OF THE ELECTRICAL 
ENGINEERING CURRICULUM 

Student involvement in the electrical engineering discipline increases 
during each year of the program. Most of the core electrical engineer- 
ing courses are taken in the fourth and fifth semesters. During the last 
three semesters the student chooses electives so as to define a curricu- 
lum to meet specific educational and career needs. 

The electrical engineering core curriculum focuses on fundamen- 
tal electrical engineering knowledge: circuits (ECE 1 1 0), systems (ECE 
210), electromagnetics (ECE 229), solid state electronics (ECE 340), 
computer engineering (ECE 290, ECE 249), computer science (C S 125, 
223), and design (ECE 345). The rich set of ECE elective courses 
permits students to study in any subdiscipline of electrical engineer- 
ing including: acoustics, bioengineering, circuits, communications, 
control, electromagnetics, physical electronics, power, signal process- 
ing, and space science and remote sensing. 

METHODS OF INSTRUCTION AND DESIGN EXPERIENCE 

Instruction is given using a combination of lecture, discussion, labo- 
ratory, and project methodologies of the highest quality. The large 
number of laboratory courses and superb access to advanced com- 
puter f acuities provide excellent practical experience in the field. 
Laboratory and design work are emphasized throughout the curricu- 
lum beginning with Introduction to Electrical and Computer Engi- 
neering (ECE 110). The sophomore year includes design experience in 
Introduction to Computer Engineering (ECE 290) and the Digital 
Systems Laboratory (ECE 249). During the junior and senior years, 
students gain further design experience in elective courses, including 
at least two laboratory courses, in their chosen subdiscipline. In the 
Senior Design Project Laboratory (ECE 345), students learn to com- 
bine all phases of an engineering project including design, analysis, 
construction, teamwork and reporting. 

HONORS ACTIVITY 

Students wishing to do honors work are encouraged to apply to the 
James Scholar Program administered jointly by the College of Engi- 
neering and the ECE Department. In consultation with departmental 
honors advisors, students create and carry out honors activity con- 
tracts. They must also participate in the ECE Honors Seminar and are 
encouraged to participate in the yearly Undergraduate Honors Sym- 
posium. The department offers thesis courses and project opportuni- 
ties for students wishing to graduate with Highest Honors. 

GRADE-POINT AVERAGE REQUIREMENTS 

A student must have a grade-point average of at least 2.0 (A=4.0) in 
ECE courses in order to remain in good standing and to graduate. To 
qualify for registration for the ECE courses shown in the third year of 
the curriculum, a student must have completed, with a combined 2.25 
grade-point average, the mathematics, physics, computer science, 
and electrical and computer engineering courses shown in the first 
two years.

For the Degree of Bachelor of Science in Engineering Mechanics 

This curriculum, offered by the Department of Theoretical and Ap- 
plied Mechanics, is intended primarily for students pursuing careers 
in research and development in mechanical, civil, aerospace, and 
related engineering fields. The program also provides excellent prepa- 
ration for graduate study in many different engineering disciplines. 

Because of the diversity of modern research and development 
problems — especially in such newly emerging areas as energy devel- 
opment, materials engineering, space technology, and computer- 
based design — the curriculum is organized around a core that empha- 
sizes a broad education covering the basic areas of science and 
engineering mechanics that are fundamental to all branches of engi- 
neering. In addition, secondary field options in such areas as experi- 
mental mechanics and mechanical behavior of modern materials 
allow the student to concentrate on areas of special interest. 

The curriculum develops and integrates the design experience — 
starring in the freshman year with a design-oriented Discovery Pro- 
gram course and finishing in the senior year with an industry-related 
research-and-design project (TAM 293, 294). 

The curriculum requires 128 hours for graduation. A curriculum 
revision was pending at time of publication. A current listing of 
theoretical and applied mechanics courses can be found at http:// 
www.tam.uiuc.edu. See departmental adviser for more information.

For the Degree of Bachelor of Science in Engineering Physics 

This curriculum provides broad, thorough training in fundamental 
physics and mathematics to prepare students for graduate study in 
physics and related fields and for research and development positions 
in industrial and governmental laboratories. For the first two years, 
the curriculum follows the common engineering program. In the last 
two years, the emphasis is on advanced courses in physics and 
mathematics, with an allowance for electives. 

To remain in good academic standing, a student continuing in or 
transferring to this curriculum must have (1 ) a grade-point average of 
2.5 (A = 4.0) in all University subjects exclusive of military science, 
physical education, and band; (2) a grade-point average of at least 2.5 
in all 100- and 200-level courses in mathematics and physics; and (3) 
a separate grade-point average of at least 2.5 for all 300-level math- 
ematics and physics courses. This grade-point average must include 
at least two physics courses. A transfer student must have a corre- 
sponding record in the institution from which he or she has trans- 
ferred and must maintain such status at the UIUC. 

Students with proficiency or Advanced Placement (AP) credit for 
MATH 120 are strongly encouraged to enroll in MATH 130 and 
PHYCS 1 1 1 for the first semester. Entering freshmen should enroll for 
the fall term in PHYCS 110 (under development as PHYCS 199B), 
where they will meet with faculty members and other physics majors. 



UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAMS

The illustrative schedule that follows shows the required courses 
in a four-year program. A minimum of 128 hours is required for 
graduation. However, many students take these courses in a different 
order and take additional courses at their discretion. The program 
includes 37 hours of electives, 18 of which must be chosen from the 
College of Engineering list of approved electives in the social sciences 
and humanities. The remaining 19 hours include 6 hours of free 
electives and 1 3 hours of technical or nontechnical electives, of which 
at least 6 hours must be nontechnical and at least 4 technical. For this 
curriculum, technical electives are defined as most courses within the 
areas of physics, mathematics, astronomy, atmospheric sciences, chem- 
istry, computer science, and engineering. Among the 37 elective 
hours, one course must satisfy the general education Composition II 
requirement. (See the section on requirements on page 41.)

APPLIED PHYSICS OPTIONS 

In consultation with his or her adviser, a student may elect an applied 
physics option. These options involve subjects related to physics that 
are of an applied nature and allow the student to focus on a specialized 
area. A student must register for an option in the physics undergradu- 
ate records office, where a list of approved courses is available. 
Planning for the option should begin during the sophomore year. 
Courses in these options may be taken under the various elective 
categories, or they may be substituted for certain advanced physics 
courses approved by the adviser. Each student must satisfy the social 
sciences and humanities requirements of the College of Engineering. 
Students entering in fall 1994 and later must also satisfy the campus 
general education requirements for social sciences and humanities. 
The options are as follows: 
Applied Nuclear Physics 
Bioengineering (see page 90) 
Fluids and Plasmas 
Optical Physics and Lasers 
Physical Electronics 
Systems Analysis and Control Theory

For the Degree of Bachelor of Science in General Engineering 

The general engineering curriculum provides a comprehensive pro- 
gram in the basic sciences, engineering sciences, and engineering 
design. The program was developed to give a broad background in 
mechanics and structures, control systems, and decision-making that 
is supportive of a systems approach to engineering. It is enriched by 
the use of computer-aided engineering tools, lab activities, and course 
experiences involving a design-build-test-evaluate ("closed-loop") 
design cycle that echoes the real world. This learning begins in the 
freshman year and culminates in an internship-like, senior-level project 
course sequence (GE 342, 343) in which student teams solve real- 
world design problems posed by external sponsors. 

The curriculum also incorporates specialized study in an ap- 
proved secondary field of choice (described below) that provides 
virtually unlimited opportunity and flexibility to tailor the curricu- 
lum to one's interests. The College of Engineering's manufacturing 
option, bioengineering minor, and international minor may be incor- 
porated into the curriculum through the secondary field and other 
electives. Through the capstone project course and a senior seminar, 
the curriculum teaches the life skills necessary for success in the 



COLLEGE OF ENGINEERING 
107 



professional world. Overall, this curriculum prepares students for 
graduate study and positions of managerial and technical leadership 
in careers in the public and private sectors. 

The curriculum requires 131 hours for graduation. At time of 
publication, the curriculum was under revision. See your departmen- 
tal adviser for the most current information or visit the department 
Web site at http://www.ge.uiuc.edu.

SECONDARY FIELDS OF CONCENTRATION FOR THE 
UNDERGRADUATE CURRICULUM IN GENERAL ENGINEERING 

The secondary field requires a minimum of 12 hours of courses. 

Secondary fields are of two types: preapproved and customized. 
Preapproved fields have designated titles and a preapproved list of 
courses from which, in general, any 12 credit hours may be selected. 
However, substitutions of other courses may be requested via a 
petition form submitted to the department. Customized secondary 
fields may be created to fulfill student needs in areas beyond the 
preapproved ones. For customized secondary fields, a suitable title 
and all the courses must be petitioned for acceptance to the depart- 
ment. Petition approval is based on the merit of the secondary field 
and the coherence of the courses within it relative to the student's 
goals.

For the Degree of Bachelor of Science in Industrial Engineering 

Industrial engineering reflects the global, systems-oriented way we 
look at the world today. Industrial engineers focus on systems and 
how their components fit together. To solve complex systems prob- 
lems, engineers must understand people as well as technology. Con- 
sequently, industrial engineering draws upon a variety of disciplines, 
from mathematics to psychology, from communications to computer 
science, from production management to process control. Industrial 
engineers design efficient, productive systems in a wide range of 
business, industrial, and governmental settings. 

The technical portion of the industrial engineering curriculum is 
designed as a sequence of increasingly specialized experiences. The 
entering student's first year is spent mastering the basics of science: 
math, chemistry, and physics. Building on this base, in the second year 
students begin to take fundamental engineering courses such as 
statics, dynamics, statistics, and strength of materials. By the third 
year students are taking specialized industrial engineering courses in 
operations research, human factors, facilities and production plan- 
ning, quality control, materials, and manufacturing. Finally, during 
the senior year, students have the opportunity to both broaden and 
deepen their knowledge of the field through technical elective courses . 
At the end of the curriculum, students take the "capstone" senior 
design course (I E 280), in which all the knowledge and skills they have 
learned are applied to projects submitted to the department by indus- 
trial firms. 

The industrial engineering curriculum emphasizes engineering 
design, simulation, hands-on laboratories, computer skills, and writ- 
ten and oral communication. Industrial engineering students can 
expect these elements to be woven throughout their major course 
work, beginning with the introductory freshman course and conclud- 
ing with the senior design course. The technical aspects of an indus- 
trial engineering student's education are complemented by the hu- 
manities and social sciences courses and by material on leadership, 
ethics, and team-building that are distributed throughout the curricu- 
lum. 

To qualify for registration in the industrial engineering courses 
shown in the third (junior) year of the curriculum, a student must have 
completed the mathematics, chemistry, physics, computer science, 
and engineering courses that are shown in the first (freshman) and 
second (sophomore) years of the curriculum with a combined grade- 
point average of at least 2.25 (A=4.0). To remain in good academic 
standing or graduate from this curriculum, a student must have a 
grade-point average of at least 2.0 in all 200- and 300-level required 
engineering courses and technical elective courses taken on this 
campus. 

The curriculum requires 132 hours for graduation.

produce new materials. The materials science and engineering cur- 
riculum provides the student with an understanding of the underly- 
ing principles of synthesis and processing of materials and of the 
interrelationships between structure, properties, and processing. The 
program covers all classes of materials, although in the senior year the 
student may elect to specialize in a particular class of materials. 
Options in ceramics, metals, polymers, and electronic materials are 
offered in the department, but other interdisciplinary options (com- 
posites, biomaterials, and other areas) are possible through a suitable 
choice of electives. 

The program prepares students for professional careers in a wide 
variety of industries as well as for advanced study in this field. Design 
of materials with properties tailored for specific applications and the 
processes used to produce them are first introduced in the freshman 
year. This theme is developed throughout the curriculum in required 
and elective courses and culminates in the capstone design experience 
in the senior year. 

The program in materials science and engineering requires a 
minimum of 128 hours for graduation.

For the Degree of Bachelor of Science in Mechanical 
Engineering 

Mechanical engineering may be the most diverse of the engineering 
fields, embracing many subfields and affecting all aspects of our lives. 
Mechanical engineers work on new machines, products, and pro- 
cesses that hold the promise of better lives for all of us. They are 
concerned with both technological and economic aspects in the de- 
sign, development, and use of their products. Today one of the 
challenges is to design efficient, low-cost machines and processes that 
use the fewest possible natural resources to improve the lives of 
people throughout the world. 

The technical portion of the mechanical engineering curriculum is 
designed as a sequence of increasingly specialized experiences. The 
entering student's first year is spent mastering the basics of science: 
math, chemistry, and physics. Building on this base, in the second year 
students begin to take fundamental engineering courses such as 
statics, dynamics, basic circuits and electronics, thermodynamics, and 
strength of materials. By the third year students are taking specialized 
mechanical engineering courses in the subfields of fluid mechanics, 
heat transfer, dynamic systems and controls, materials, mechanical 
design, and manufacturing. Finally, during the senior year, students 
have the opportunity to both broaden and deepen their knowledge of 
the field through technical elective courses. At the end of the curricu- 
lum, students take the "capstone" senior design course (M E 280), in 
which all the knowledge and skills they have learned are applied to 
projects submitted to the department by industrial firms. 

The mechanical engineering curriculum emphasizes engineering 
design, hands-on laboratories, computer skills, and written and oral 
communication. Mechanical engineering students can expect these 
elements to be woven throughout their major course work, beginning 
with the introductory freshman course and concluding with the 
capstone design course. The technical aspects of a mechanical engi- 
neering student's education are complemented by the humanities and 
social sciences courses and by material on leadership, ethics, and 
team-building that are distributed throughout the curriculum. 

To qualify for registration in the mechanical engineering courses 
shown in the third (junior) year of the curriculum, a student must have 
completed the mathematics, chemistry, physics, computer science, 
and engineering courses that are shown in the first (freshman) and 
second (sophomore) years of the curriculum with a combined grade- 
point average of at least 2.25 (A=4.0). To remain in good academic 
standing or to graduate from this curriculum, a student must have a 
grade-point average of at least 2.0 in all 200- and 300-level required 
engineering courses and technical elective courses taken on this 
campus. 

The curriculum requires 132 hours for graduation.

For the Degree of Bachelor of Science in Nuclear Engineering 

The curriculum in nuclear engineering provides comprehensive study 
in basic sciences, basic engineering, the social sciences and humani- 
ties, and technical areas specific to nuclear engineering. Engineering 
principles, including synthesis and system integration and design, are 
incorporated with the nuclear engineering courses, beginning with an 
orientation to the discipline taken immediately by freshmen and 
continuing through the program to the formal two-course sequence of 
NUC E 348: Reactor Engineering and Design and NUC E 358: Nuclear 
Engineering and Design, the capstone design project, in the senior 
year. Sufficient flexibility of course selection of both technical and free 
electives enables the student to emphasize breadth or depth of study 
or both. Thus, the curriculum prepares its graduates not only to enter 
directly into a wide variety of careers in nuclear engineering but also 
to continue formal education at the graduate level. 

Nuclear engineering is a branch of engineering primarily related 
to the development and use of nuclear energy sources. It includes the 
continued application of fission reactors as central electric power 
plant thermal sources; the longer term development of fusion reactors 
for electric power generation; and the expanding use of radiation 
sources in such areas as materials, biological systems, medical treat- 
ment, radiation instrumentation, environmental systems, and activa- 
tion analysis. 

The curriculum during the first two years provides a strong 
foundation in basic sciences (physics and mathematics) and engineer- 
ing sciences (analytical mechanics and thermodynamics), an intro- 
duction to digital computer use, and an introduction to nuclear 
systems. Taking these courses during this time in the program pro- 
vides the student added flexibility in choosing technical elective 
courses with specific prerequisites. 

The curriculum requires 128 hours for graduation.

Special Programs 

INDIVIDUAL STUDY PROGRAM 

Each curriculum offered by the College of Fine and Applied Arts is 
designed to develop professional competence in the specific area of 
studies noted on the degree. Therefore, an individual study program 
must ensure this professional development. A qualified student (3.0 
cumulative GPA) who has specific professional goals that are not met 
by the curricular offerings of the college may request an individual 
program of studies selected from courses offered by the University. 
Such a program must include the basic courses prerequisite for 
advanced study, requirements of the University for graduation, gen- 
eral education requirements of the college, and professional course 
work that will ensure the competence expected for the particular 
degree. 

To obtain approval for an individual study program, the student 
must submit his or her proposal in writing during the sophomore or 
junior year. The proposal should contain an outline of the complete 
program of course work, as well as an explanation of the professional 
goal desired. It should be discussed with and submitted to an ap- 



proved representative of the appropriate department or school con- 
cerned with the degree, who will then forward the proposal through 
the executive officer of the department or school for recommendation 
to the college Office Of Student Affairs. Final consideration and 
notification of the action taken on the proposal will be made by the 
college office. 

STUDY ABROAD 

The college provides the opportunity for students to obtain campus 
credit for foreign study and /or travel for a period of from one 
semester to one calendar year. Students must submit detailed propos- 
als of plans for such study and / or travel for approval by the appropri- 
ate departmental committees and by the associate dean of the college 
prior to such study abroad. If approved, students register and retain 
their status as University students and may continue their student 
health insurance as if they continued to study at the Urbana-Cham- 
paign campus. Information is available from the Study Abroad Office, 
115 International Studies Building. 

HONORS AT GRADUATION 

At graduation, the College of Fine and Applied Arts grants honors to 
superior students. To be eligible, students must have completed a 
minimum of four semesters of work and 65 hours of credit in residence 
at the Urbana-Champaign campus. 

For the degree with honors, the student must have a grade-point 
average of 3.25 (A = 4.0) or better in all courses used for graduation and 
be in the upper 25 percent of those receiving a degree from that 
department or school; for the degree with high honors, a grade-point 
average of 3.5 or better and the upper 15 percent; and for the degree 
with highest honors, a grade-point average of 3.75 or better and the 
upper 6 percent. Credit earned at other institutions and transferred to 
the University of Illinois is used in computing the student's average. 
Credit earned at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign must 
be of at least the level required for the degree with honors. 

Requirements 

GRADUATION 

Students who meet the general University requirements with refer- 
ence to registration, residence, scholarship, fees, rhetoric, and general

The mission and educational intent of the School of Architecture is, in 
the broadest sense, concerned with the design of the built environ- 
ment and its relationship with the natural environment as directed 
toward and responding to the needs and aspirations of human pur- 
poses. Architectural education at Illinois provides first, at the under- 
graduate level, an in-depth professional preparation together with a 
base of liberal arts education; and second, at the graduate level, an 
appropriately diversified selection of professional options that allow 
students to gain depth in pursuit of individual interests that are 
applicable to current and future professional directions. 

In the final analysis, the goal of the program is multifaceted. 
Graduates should expect to prepare themselves for active profes- 
sional roles and to gain knowledge of architectural opportunities, 
problems, issues, and challenges, and ways to address them. They will 
become familiar with the language of the many disciplines that 
contribute to the shaping of the built environment and to become 
aware of past, present, and new applications of information and 
knowledge. Additionally graduates also will develop a sense of 
confidence in their personal interpretation of the role of the profession 
in society and in their ability to become a vital part of the practice of 
architecture. 

DEGREE PROGRAMS IN ARCHITECTURE 

The School of Architecture offers a four-year preprofessional curricu- 
lum leading to the bachelor of science in architectural studies degree. 
The BSAS degree provides an undergraduate academic education in 
architecture that can serve as a foundation for advanced professional 
education. The undergraduate curriculum offers an appropriate bal- 
ance of basic professional studies in architectural design, architectural 
history, practice and technology, structures, and studies in the arts 
and sciences. 

The following statement is from the National Architectural Accredit- 
ing Board (NAAB): 

Most states require that an individual intending to become a architect 
hold an accredited degree. There are two types of degrees that are 
accredited by the National Architectural Accrediting Board: l)The Bach- 
elor of Architecture, which requires a minimum of five years of study, and 
2) the Master of Architecture, which requires a minimum of three years 
of study following an unrelated bachelor's degree or two years following 
a related pre-professional bachelor's degree. These professional degrees 
are structured to educate those who aspire to registration and lincensure 
as architects. 

The four-year pre-professional degree, where offered, is not accreditted by 
NAAB. The pre-professional degree is useful to those wishing a founda- 
tion in the field of architecture, as preparation for either continued 
education in a professional program or for employment options in fields 
related to architecture. 
The accredited degree at the University of Illinois is the master of 
architecture. 

Since 1967, the School of Architecture has operated a one-year 
study abroad program in Versailles, France, which is open to qualif ied 
students on a priority basis. Course offerings parallel those available 
to students on the Urbana-Champaign campus but stress the Euro- 
pean context. 

The School of Architecture occupies drafting rooms, lecture rooms, 
and offices in the Architecture Building, Flagg Hall, and Temple 
Hoyne Buell Hall. The Ricker Library of Architecture and Art is 
located in the Architecture Building. 

UNDERGRADUATE CURRICULUM IN ARCHITECTURE 

For the Degree of Bachelor of Science in Architectural Studies 

In this curriculum, normal progress is imperative. A student failing to 
complete any required course more than one semester later than the 
time designated in the curriculum is prohibited from progressive 
registration in architectural courses until the deficiency is corrected.

School of Music 

2134 Music Building 
1114 West Nevada 
Urbana, IL 61801 
(217) 333-2620 

The School of Music occupies the Music Building, Smith Memorial 
Hall, Harding Band Building, Music Annex, and space in the Krannert 
Center for the Performing Arts. These facilities include studios, class- 
rooms, practice and rehearsal rooms; experimental electronic music, 
computer music, digital piano, and computer-assisted music instruc- 
tion laboratories; and musical instruments, audio equipment, and 
several auditoriums used for concert, recital, opera, and musical 
theatre performances. 

The Music Library is one of the largest collections of music items 
in America. The faculty and students of the school present more than 
350 concerts, recitals, and stage performances throughout the year, 
both on and off campus. In addition, visiting artists and scholars from 
throughout the world present master classes and lectures which 
complement the concert and academic offerings provided on the 
Urbana-Champaign campus. 

The School offers two professional undergraduate degrees: the 
bachelor of music and the bachelor of music education. Undergradu- 
ate students whose musical interests are in the broad historical, 
cultural, and theoretical aspects of music (rather than professional 
training) may want to investigate the bachelor of arts degree offered 
through the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, described on page 
173. Graduate degrees are offered in a variety of fields of study in 
music at the master's and doctoral levels. 

Bands, choral ensembles, orchestras, jazz bands, new music en- 
sembles, world music ensembles, opera theatre, and many other 
musical organizations are open to music and non-music majors and 
members of the university and civic communities by audition. Private 
lessons and courses in history, theory, and music appreciation are 
open to all qualified students in the University. 

All applicants for admission to the School of Music must apply and 
be admitted to the University of Illinois and must also audition 
successfully on their major performance instrument or in voice. On- 
campus auditions are preferred, but taped auditions are acceptable 
under certain circumstances. In addition, applicants for music compo- 
sition-theory and history of music majors must submit original scores 
or other pertinent writings to substantiate their ability to pursue work 
in these areas. Applicants in music education must also complete an 
interview with the music education faculty. 



For complete information concerning audition schedules, special 
admission requirements, and curricula, prospective students should 
contact the coordinator of undergraduate admissions, School of Mu- 
sic, 1114 West Nevada Street, Urbana IL 61801, (217) 244-0551. 

CURRICULA IN MUSIC 



For the Degree of Bachelor of Music 

These curricula require 130 semester hours of credit for graduation. 
Required courses in composition, quantitative reasoning, humanities 
and the arts, social and behavioral sciences, natural sciences and 
technology, and cultural studies, and electives must be chosen from 
the college general education distribution lists available from college 
and departmental advisers. 

Public performance is an integral part of the training in applied 
music, and all students, when sufficiently prepared, are required to 
participate in student recitals. 

All students are required to enroll in at least one approved perfor- 
mance ensemble each semester in residence with a maximum of 10 
semester hours of ensemble applicable to their degree. 

All students pursuing majors in this curriculum are required to 
successfully complete at least one course in conducting. 

The sequences of classes given below are based on a typical four- 
year course of study but may be modified with an adviser's approval 
to meet the student's individual needs. 

INSTRUMENTAL MUSIC MAJOR 

Students may major in piano, organ, violin, viola, violoncello, double 
bass, flute, oboe, clarinet, saxophone, bassoon, trumpet or cornet, 
horn, euphonium, baritone, trombone, tuba, percussion, or harp. 

A student enrolled in this program normally takes two applied 
subjects, one a major (32 semester hours) and the other a minor (8 
semester hours). Third- and fourth-year students must present satis- 
factory public junior and senior recitals as part of the requirements for 
the bachelor of music degree.

Department of Theatre 

4-122 Krannert Center for the Performing Arts 
500 South Goodwin Avenue 
Urbana, IL 61801 
(217) 333-2371 

The curricular options in the Department of Theatre provide intensive 
and extensive preparation for the rigorous demands of a professional 
career in the theatre. A strong commitment to work in the theatre and 
a realistic understanding of its intellectual, aesthetic, and physical 
demands is therefore necessary in students who enter the department. 

Before acceptance in the undergraduate programs in theatre, 
applicants must participate in one of several preadmission work- 
shops, which take place at the Krannert Center for the Performing Arts 
five or more weekends each year, and at selected regional locations 
(normally, New York, Chicago, San Francisco, and Los Angeles). In 
these workshops, applicants who ultimately plan to pursue the cur- 
riculum in acting in their junior year should present a four-minute 
audition, comprised of two contrasting works from dramatic litera- 
ture. Applicants who ultimately wish to pursue a curriculum in 
design, technology, or management should present a portfolio of 
previous theatre work. Applicants who intend to pursue the perfor- 
mance studies curriculum should also bring a portfolio of their 
previous theatre work, an original two-page script written specifically 
for the workshop, and any other written work that reflects the student's 
interests and accomplishments. Information on these workshops will 
be sent to applicants once their admissibility to the University has 
been determined by the Office of Admissions and Records. 

Three curricula are offered in theatre: (1) the Professional Studio in 
Acting, (2) the Performance Studies Curriculum, and (3) the Division 
of Design Technology and Manangement, which has specialized 
options in scene design, costume design and construction, theatre 
technology and lighting, and stage management. Students are for- 
mally admitted to these curricula only after an evaluation by the 
faculty during the students' second year. The programs in acting and 
theatre design, technology, and management are intended for stu- 
dents who, in the judgement of the faculty, are ready to concentrate in 
these specialties in an intensive undergraduate professional training 
curriculum. The performance studies curriculum is intended for 
students who plan to pursue advanced training in theatre history, 
criticism, directing, and playwriting. 



UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAMS 



128 



student is helped to acquire a broad liberal education that leads to an 
understanding of the natural and social environments, their prob- 
lems, and their potentialities for enriching human life. Undergraduate 
planning education leads to diverse professional employment careers 
or graduate study in urban planning or related professions. The 
degree is accredited by the Planning Accreditation Board. 

A transfer student must have completed 30 or more semester 
hours of acceptable undergraduate college work (including introduc- 
tory courses in microeconomics, statistics, political sciences, and 
sociology: a sequence in English composition is desirable) with an 
earned grade-point average of at least 2.5 (A = 4.0). Transfer applicants 
not meeting these requirements will be considered in special cases. 

The department's administrative offices, classrooms, and work- 
shop space are located in Temple Hoyne Buell Hall. Students may go 
to Room 111 for information. 

The Department of Urban and Regional Planning also offers a 
program of graduate studies leading to the master of urban planning 
degree, dual degree programs with the master of architecture and the 
juris doctor degrees, and the doctor of philosophy degree in regional 
planning.

College of Liberal Arts and Sciences 



270 Lincoln Hall 
702 South Wright Street 
Urbana, IL 61801 
(217) 333-1705 

The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences (LAS) has four missions: 
scholarly inquiry and the generation of knowledge, preparation of 
individuals for an array of careers and professions, service to the 
public, and the provision of the intellectual core of the University. The 
college shares the first three missions with professional schools and 
other colleges on this campus, but the last mission is uniquely the 
responsibility of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. By fulfilling 
this responsibility, the college helps develop broadly educated indi- 
viduals who are committed to or characterized by open inquiry, 
critical thinking, effective communication, and responsiveness to the 
needs of individuals and society. 

The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences is the largest individual 
college within a university setting in the state of Illinois. The college 
enrolls more than 40 percent of the undergraduates on the Urbana- 
Champaign campus. The college serves the entire campus by provid- 
ing a full range of required general education and service courses in 
basic disciplines. 

Students in the college are expected to understand the content and 
develop skills in areas that reflect the overall purpose of the college: 
fluency and facility in English; literacy in at least one foreign language; 
broad exposure to a number of different disciplines; and intensive 
study in one discipline (or an interdisciplinary program). The student 
has a wide choice of courses to satisfy these requirements; however, 
ultimately he or she must plan a diverse and intensive program of 
study, prepare for an occupational/professional and intellectual fu- 
ture, and develop that clarity and range of mind that is the goal of 
educated people. 

Admission 

The general admission requirements and procedures of the College of 
Liberal Arts and Sciences are outlined in the Admission chapter (see 
page 15). These requirements were established to enable students 
admitted here to make the most effective use of the facilities of the 
University. The requirements should ensure that entering students 
have the capability of completing a degree program successfully. 

The high school subjects required for admission provide a reason- 
ably rigorous preparation for most students. The college nonetheless 
urges prospective students to build on the minimum requirements 
whenever possible. In the study of foreign language, for example, 
successful completion of four years of a single language in secondary 
school will satisfy the College graduation requirement in foreign 
language so students should include as much foreign language as 
possible in their secondary school program.

Advising 



Academic advising is a critical resource for students in developing a 
program of study. Especially on a large campus, a continuing, com- 
mitted association with a faculty member can be a valuable and 
rewarding part of the student's educational experience. Advisers are 
available to aid students in choosing majors, planning for career 
choices, and selecting courses for each semester. All students in 
degree programs in the college have academic advisers available in 
their major departments. In addition, the assistant and associate deans 
in the college assist students in handling a variety of problems and 
questions. 

In order to simplify minor changes in course selections, a student 
who has successfully completed at least 30 semester hours of course 
work and who understands the requirements of the college and the 
University may choose courses without obtaining approval from an 
academic adviser unless informed otherwise by the college. A student 
does need to obtain approval from an adviser for a number of 
arrangements, including a formal plan of study for the major and the 
election of the credit-no credit grading option. A student may be 
requested by the college office to obtain approval from an adviser 
and/or the dean for all course changes under certain circumstances. 
It is very important for advanced students to confer with advisers on 
a regular basis; therefore, the college encourages all students to 
consult with their academic advisers at least once each semester. 

One particular resource for a student in the college who has not 
decided on a plan of study is the General Curriculum. The General 
Curriculum is an advising center for students who want to investigate 
a variety of subjects before selecting their majors or who have decided 
on programs that require transfer at the sophomore or junior level. The 
General Curriculum is not a degree program and does not serve as a 
formal program of study. Entering freshmen and continuing students 
with less than 45 semester hours of credit may elect to enter the 
General Curriculum and may remain in the program until they 
complete 56 academic semester hours. The office provides individual 
advising; group orientation sessions; and printed materials describ- 
ing majors, curricula, and many career opportunities. Students in the 
General Curriculum are LAS students and must follow LAS policies 
and regulations. The General Curriculum Office serves as the college 
office for students in the program. 

Another special resource in the college is qualified advising for 
students who are interested in law school. An assistant dean in the 
LAS Student Affairs Office (270 Lincoln Hall) counsels students who 
have declared a prelaw interest. All such students are encouraged to 
consult the prelaw adviser. Students preparing for law school may 
elect any major. To obtain a handbook on prelaw advising, contact the 
prelaw adviser at 270 Lincoln Hall. See also Preprofessional Pro- 
grams, page 187. 



Graduation Requirements 



DEGREES GRANTED 

A degree can be earned by completing the requirements for either a 
Sciences and Letters curriculum or one of the specialized curricula. A 
student completing the Sciences and Letters Curriculum receives the 
degree of bachelor of arts or bachelor of science in liberal arts and 
sciences, depending on the student's major. A student electing one of 
the majors in the physical sciences, life sciences, psychology, math- 
ematics or statistics will receive the bachelor of science degree. A 
student in any of the other majors will receive the bachelor of arts 
degree. 

COMPONENTS OF THE SCIENCES AND LETTERS 
CURRICULUM 

The Sciences and Letters Curriculum consists of several distinct parts, 
all of which are considered by the college to be necessary for a liberal 
education. Below is an outline of the components of the degree 
program. A detailed discussion of each component follows.

requirements 



1. The Composition II requirement is a campus requirement effective for new 
freshmen and transfer students entering the University in fall 1991 or later. See page 
41 for more information. 

2. The Campus Senate, the faculty General Education Board, and the colleges and 
departments are working to implement enhanced general education requirements. 
Thus, new students should confirm their general education requirements by consulting 
college and departmental offices, handbooks, or advisers. 

ENGLISH COMPOSITION REQUIREMENT 

The ability to write effectively is a cornerstone of a liberal education. 
All students in the Sciences and Letters Curriculum must satisfy the 
campus rhetoric requirement. See page 41 for a statement of the 
requirement. Students are strongly encouraged to include additional 
writing courses in their programs whenever possible. 

FOREIGN LANGUAGE REQUIREMENT 

Each student in the Sciences and Letters Curriculum is expected to 
learn a foreign language in the undergraduate program. A minimum 
expectation is that the student obtain a knowledge equivalent to the 
completion of the fourth semester of college study in a language. Some 
programs may require additional study or the study of a specific 
language. A student planning on graduate study may wish to consult 
the department of intended graduate study about language require- 
ments for the graduate program. This may dictate the student's choice 
of language study during undergraduate work. The foreign language 
requirement may be met in any of the following ways: 
1 . Satisfactory completion of four years of the same foreign language 
in high school;

student is helped to acquire a broad liberal education that leads to an 
understanding of the natural and social environments, their prob- 
lems, and their potentialities for enriching human life. Undergraduate 
planning education leads to diverse professional employment careers 
or graduate study in urban planning or related professions. The 
degree is accredited by the Planning Accreditation Board. 

A transfer student must have completed 30 or more semester 
hours of acceptable undergraduate college work (including introduc- 
tory courses in microeconomics, statistics, political sciences, and 
sociology: a sequence in English composition is desirable) with an 
earned grade-point average of at least 2.5 (A = 4.0). Transfer applicants 
not meeting these requirements will be considered in special cases. 

The department's administrative offices, classrooms, and work- 
shop space are located in Temple Hoyne Buell Hall. Students may go 
to Room 111 for information. 

The Department of Urban and Regional Planning also offers a 
program of graduate studies leading to the master of urban planning 
degree, dual degree programs with the master of architecture and the 
juris doctor degrees, and the doctor of philosophy degree in regional 
planning.

4. Satisfactory performance at the fourth-semester level in a language 

proficiencv examination approved by the College of Liberal Arts 
and Sciences and the appropriate department. 

GENERAL EDUCATION REQUIREMENT 

General education courses are the foundation vehicle for the college's 
unique mandate: the provision of the intellectual core of undergradu- 
ate study at the University. Through these required courses, each 
student in the college is expected to obtain an understanding of the 
ways in which knowledge is acquired and used in the diverse disci- 
plines represented by the University's curricula. The graduate must 
have some acquaintance with literature and the arts, history, philo- 
sophical inquiry, and the insights and techniques of the social sci- 
ences, as well as the aims and methods of the natural sciences. 

Students are therefore required to complete broadly distributed 
course work in two general areas: one in the arts and social sciences, 
the other in mathematics and the sciences. Students must take at least 
ten courses: five in Area I (arts and social sciences) and five in Area II 
(mathematics and science). The specific list of the distribution of 
courses is given in Components of the Curriculum, page 129. Current 
lists of courses approved for each of the general education categories 
may be obtained in the LAS Student Affairs Office, 270 Lincoln Hall, 
during early registration or may be viewed on the LAS homepage, 
http://kingbird.las.uiuc.edu/las/. 

The LAS general education requirements are set up so that stu- 
dents automatically complete the campus general education require- 
ments. The exceptions to this are the campus Composition II and 
western cultures requirements which must also be completed. 

The LAS general education categories and their purposes are 
briefly described below, together with an abbreviated listing of some 
of the disciplines from which courses for these categories are drawn. 

Literature and the Arts. To consider the literary, visual, and perform- 
ing arts as aesthetic or creative achievements. (English, language 
departments, art history, music) 

Historical and Philosophical Perspectives. To understand both the 
events and ideas of the past, thus acquiring a fresh perspective on 
the present; to understand the major philosophical issues that 
confront human beings. (Classical civilization, history, philoso- 
phy, religious studies) 

Social Perspectives. To acquire an understanding of social contexts 
and institutions. (Anthropology, economics, geography, political 
science, sociology) 

Non-Western Cultures and Traditions. To attain a broad awareness 
of the values and traditions of people from different cultures. 
(African studies, anthropology, Asian studies, history, religious 
studies) 

U.S. Minority Cultures. To provide deepened understanding and 
appreciation of significant aspects of cultural traditions outside the 
dominant cultural tradition of the United States. 

Physical Sciences. To comprehend the major aspects of the physical 
world and to become conversant with the nature of scientific 
inquiry. (Astronomy, chemistry, geography, geology, physics) 

Biological Sciences. To consider the structure and function of life 
forms, their ecological or their evolutionary relationships, and 
their importance to the human community. (Anthropology; biol- 
ogy; ecology, ethology, and evolution; entomology; microbiology; 
physiology; psychology) 

Behavioral Sciences. To study individual human behavior. (Psychol- 
ogy) 

Mathematics. To study a substantial mathematical endeavor or to 
explore the scientific and humanistic import of mathematics. (Math- 
ematics, computer science, statistics) 

Students are urged to consult with their advisers regarding the choice 
of courses to complement their programs and to meet educational 
objectives. Some of the approved courses have prerequisites. 



NOTES: 

— The credit-no credit option may not be used for courses that satisfy general 

education requirements. 

— There are no limits on the number of courses from a single department that may be 

used to satisfy the requirements. 



— Courses taken to satisfy major requirements may also be used to satisfy general 

education requirements provided thev are on current general education lists. 

— A student who successfully completes a College-Level Examination Program 

(CLEP) general examination in an area of study, using University of Illinois standards, 

will receive a waiver of the requirement in that area and, in certain cases, course credit. 

See the LAS Student Handbook for details. 

— Students who receive college credit for Advanced Placement (AP) work will find 

that some course credit generally will apply toward the relevant requirement. For 

example, AP scores of 4 or 5 in English Literature will provide 3 semester hours of 

credit in English 103 and, therefore, count toward the requirement for literature and 

the arts. See page 32 for current credit policies for AP examinations. 

— Similarly, proficiency credit received through a department's own testing program 

may be used to satisfy general education requirements. 

— Students planning to study in specialized curricula or in teacher education curricula 

will be subject to the requirements as indicated elsewhere in this catalog rather than 

the above requirements. 

MAJOR 

The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences requires in-depth study in 
one discipline as well as substantial experience in a number of other 
areas. This portion of the student's program of study is called the 
major. A minor constitutes a coherent program of study requiring 
some depth in the subject, but not as extensive a program as the major. 
Minors are optional. 

ADVANCED HOURS REQUIREMENT 

A liberal arts program requires study in a number of areas (general 
education requirements) and study in some depth. Thus, each student 
is expected to complete a minimum portion of the undergraduate 
program in courses that presume some prior knowledge of the disci- 
pline. A course is considered advanced if it presumes such prior 
knowledge as indicated by the faculty (specially designated 200-level 
courses), by the course number (most courses numbered 300 or 
above), by the prerequisites necessary for enrollment in the course, or 
by the quality and depth of work expected of students in the course. 
All students in the Sciences and Letters Curriculum are expected to 
complete at least 21 hours of courses designated as advanced by the 
college in order to graduate. All such courses must be taken at 
baccalaureate-granting institutions. At least 12 advanced hours in the 
core for the major must be taken on this campus. Courses designated 
as advanced are those courses numbered 300 or above and those 200- 
level courses that are specially designated as advanced. A list of such 
advanced 200-level courses may be found in the LAS Student Hand- 
book. 

ELECTIVES 

Most liberal arts majors allow time in the student's program for a 
number of courses chosen freely from among the University's offer- 
ings. These courses, called electives, may be used to prepare for 
professional study, to prepare for business and career opportunities, 
or simply to explore additional interests. In addition to all courses 
used to fulfill the minimum graduation requirements of the college 
(rhetoric, foreign language, general education, and major), a student 
following a major may use as electives: 

— Courses offered by the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences; 

— Courses offered by departments and schools in other colleges of the 
University that sponsor majors in LAS [art (excluding applied art 
courses), computer science, economics, finance, music (excluding 
applied music courses), or physics]; 

— A maximum of 24 hours (to be counted toward graduation) of 
courses not included in either of the above, that is, courses offered 
by departments and schools in other colleges on campus. Ex- 
amples of courses in this category are accounting, business admin- 
istration, engineering, applied art courses, and applied music 
courses. 

Undergraduate students of high academic standing (i.e., a 3.0 
grade-point average or higher in courses taken beyond the sophomore 
level) within ten semester hours of earning their bachelor's degrees 
may elect courses in the Graduate College for graduate credit with the 
consent of the dean of that college. Also, students with senior standing 
may petition the Graduate College for permission to elect graduate 
courses for undergraduate credit. Interested students should first 
consult the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, 270 Lincoln Hall. 

RESIDENCE 

Students must satisfy the University residence requirement for gradu- 
ation (page 40). They must complete on this campus, uninterrupted by 
work elsewhere, either the first three years (at least 90 hours of course 



COLLEGE OF LIBERAL ARTS AND SCIENCES 



131 



work) or the last year (at least 30 hours). The hours must be applicable 
toward the degree sought. In addition, all students must earn 60 hours 
of course work at four-year (baccalaureate-granting) institutions after 
any work at community colleges. Students in the Sciences and Letters 
Curriculum are expected to earn at least 1 2 hours of credit in advanced 
courses in the core for the major on this campus (see Advanced Hours 
Requirement, above). 

TOTAL HOURS 

A total of 1 20 semester hours acceptable toward the degree is required 
for graduation in the Sciences and Letters Curriculum. 

Students should be aware that there are several specific limitations 
on the amount of particular kinds of credit that may be used in the 120 
hours: no repeated courses; no more than 24 elective hours outside the 
college, as discussed above; no more than 4 hours of credit in basic 
kinesiology courses; no more than 1 1 hours of credit in calculus and 
analytic geometry; no more than 12 hours of credit in basic physics; no 
more than 18 hours of credit in 100-level life science courses toward a 
School of Life Sciences major; no more than 9 hours of credit in basic 
rhetoric courses; no more than 10 hours of first- and second-year 
foreign language proficiency; no more than 24 hours of credit in 
aviation courses (must be from the pilot training curriculum); no more 
than 6 hours (200 and 300 level) of credit in ROTC courses; no more 
than 4 hours of credit in religious foundation courses; no more than 12 
hours of credit in undergraduate open seminar (199 course); and no 
more than 18 hours of credit in independent study and 199 courses. 
See the LAS Student Handbook for details about the credit limitations in 
each of these areas. 

Students matriculating at some college or university in June 1989 
or later may not use credit in algebra (MATH 112 or equivalent) 
toward a baccalaureate degree in the College of Liberal Arts and 
Sciences. In addition, students in the programs requiring trigonom- 
etry for admission (e.g., the specialized curricula in chemical engi- 
neering, chemistry, and physics) may not use credit in trigonometry 
(MATH 1 14 or equivalent) toward an LAS degree. See the LAS Student 
Handbook for further details. 

Areas of Study 

MAJORS IN THE SCIENCE AND LETTERS CURRICULUM 

The major consists of course work designated by the department and 
approved by the faculty of the college. Most majors will have a portion 
of the required course work in subjects relating to the major and 
supporting the major, but not chosen from courses in the major 
department; this is called the supporting course work. The major will 
have at least one-half of the course work selected or designated from 
courses numbered 200 and above. 

The major should be chosen no later than the junior year. Since 
most majors require that the student choose courses in consultation 
with a faculty adviser, students should plan to discuss the major with 
a faculty adviser early in the junior year. In most cases, a student will 
be expected to submit to the LAS Student Affairs Office (270 Lincoln 
Hall) a Major Plan of Study Form (available at Departmental Offices) 
before the end of their fifth semester. 

Students must take all course work for the minimum requirements 
of the major for a traditional letter grade (or on the satisfactory- 
unsatisfactory basis). The credit-no credit grading option may not be 
used for courses in the major. 

The satisfactory completion of a major requires not only the 
completion of a stated amount of course work, but also that the 
student earn at least a 2.0 average in courses for the major. In order to 
graduate, a student should earn at least a 2.0 grade-point average in all 
courses that are included in the major average and taken on this 
campus and at least a 2.0 average in all courses that are included in the 
major average and taken here and elsewhere. Consult the department 
or the college office for a list of courses included in the major average 
for a specific concentration. 

Each student is expected to complete a minimum amount of 
advanced course work for the major on this campus. Specifically, a 
student normally completes at least 12 hours of advanced core course 
work (course work within the major department) in the major on this 
campus. Bachelor degree programs are offered in the following areas:

SPECIALIZED CURRICULA 

Specialized curricula are designed for specific educational purposes 
which cannot be accommodated within the majors of the Sciences and 
Letters Curriculum. Specialized curricula are prescriptive programs 
that are offered as preprofessional study, preparation for graduate 
pursuits, or designed to meet the demands of an outside accrediting 
agency. Students in the specialized curricula are not eligible to receive 
minors. 

Each specialized curriculum consists of a more rigidly structured 
course of study than that generally described for the sciences and 
letters majors.

MINORS AND INTERDISCIPLINARY MINORS 

The College offers a formal system cf minors which may be completed 
in conjunction with a major in the Sciences and Letters Curriculum. A 
minor is a coherent program of study (generally 18-24 hours) requir- 
ing some depth in the subject, but is not as extensive as the major. 
Students must take the specified courses listed for each minor. No 
course substitutions are allowed. Minors are optional but must be 
completed in conjunction with a major in the Sciences and Letters 
Curriculum. Some majors may allow use of a minor in place of other 
supporting course work. 

While the minor does not replace other degree requirements, 
courses may be used both for the minor and to meet other degree 
requirements as appropriate. Students must see their records officer 
during the first semester of their senior year if they want to declare a 
minor. Students are advised to consult with the department offering 
the minor for information on the courses that will fulfill the require- 
ments. 

The following minors may be used only in conjunction with a 
major in the Sciences and Letters Curriculum.

INTERDISCIPLINARY MINORS 

There are several interdisciplinary areas in which scholarly needs or 
employment demands require recognition. In these areas, the college 
offers an interdisciplinary minor. 

The interdisciplinary minor differs from the standard minor in that 
it may require attainment of a predetermined and approved grade- 
point average in the courses for the program and students are required 
to consult with an adviser regarding selection of course work.

LAS/ENGINEERING 

For a number of years, the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences and the 
College of Engineering have jointly sponsored a five-year program 
leading to a B.A. or B.S. degree in Liberal Arts and Sciences and a B.S. 
degree in a field of engineering. The program allows motivated 
students to combine a professional engineering education with a 
broad liberal arts background. Students are required to complete all 
the degree requirements of both colleges. 

Freshmen normally apply for entrance through the College of 
Engineering, but students who have applied to and been accepted by 
the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences may be able to enter the 
program. All students must meet the entrance requirements of both 
colleges. In addition, they may be required to meet the intercollegiate 
transfer requirements of both colleges. For further information about 
the program, students should consult their college office. 

LAS/COMMERCE 

The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences together with the College of 
Commerce and Business Administration offers two joint-degree pro- 
grams that lead to the degrees of B.A. or B.S. in Liberal Arts and 
Sciences and M.A.S. or M.B.A. Each program takes five years to 
complete. These programs allow students to complete master's pro- 
grams in accounting or business administration while they provide 
students with the broad opportunities unique to a liberal arts pro- 
gram. Students interested in these opportunities should contact the 
College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, 270 Lincoln Hall for additional 
information and advising. 

BACCALAUREATE-MASTER OF ACCOUNTING SCIENCE DEGREE 
PROGRAM 

The B.A./B.S.-M.A.S. program is designed to enable the qualified 
student to earn both a bachelor's degree in the College of Liberal Arts 
and Sciences and the Master of Accounting Science degree in five 
years rather than the normal six years. The program integrates an 
undergraduate education with a professional education without di- 
luting the quality or purpose of either. Program objectives will be met 
primarily by the completion of courses during the student's fourth 
year that are simultaneously electives in the baccalaureate program 
and requirements for the M.A.S. degree. A student who is interested 
in the joint degree should contact a program adviser (in 270 Lincoln 
Hall) early in the initial year. 

The program is open to all students in the College of Liberal Arts 
and Sciences who meet the requirements below. In most cases, partici- 
pants in the B.A./B.S.-M.A.S. program will complete their under- 
graduate majors by the end of the third year. As a consequence, some 
students will have to plan their course work carefully to meet their 
undergraduate educational objectives and to participate in the pro- 
gram; this will be particularly true for undergraduates whose majors 
require extensive sequential course work. 

Because the B.A./B.S.-M.A.S. program is based on careful course 
selection and program planning, an interested student should consult 
with a B.A./B.S.-M.A.S. adviser during the first year at the University. 
The program's objectives and requirements will be explained so that 
the student, in consultation with his or her baccalaureate degree 
program adviser, may plan course work to meet both objectives. 

A student who wishes to participate in the B.A./B.S.-M.A.S. pro- 
gram must make formal application by March 31 in the second 
semester of the junior year. To be eligible for consideration, the 
student must have at least a 3.25 cumulative grade-point average, 
with at least 96 hours of course work completed, and at least a score 
of 550 on the Graduate Management Admissions Test (GMAT). 



BACCALAUREATE-MASTER OF BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION DEGREE 
PROGRAM 

The B.A./B.S.-M.B.A. program is designed to enable the qualified 
student to earn both a bachelor's degree in the College of Liberal Arts 
and Sciences and the Master of Business Administration degree in five 
years rather than the normal six years. The program integrates an 
undergraduate education in a field such as English, political science, 
or economics with a professional business education without diluting 
the quality or purpose of either. Program objectives will be met 
primarily by the completion of courses during the student's fourth 
year that are simultaneously electives in the baccalaureate program 
and requirements for the M.B.A. degree. A student who is interested 
in the joint degree should contact the program adviser (in 270 Lincoln 
Hall) early in the first year. 

The program is open to all students in the College of Liberal Arts 
and Sciences who meet the requirements below. In all cases, partici- 
pants in the B.A./B.S.-M.B.A. program must complete their under- 
graduate majors by the end of the third year. As a consequence, some 
students will have to plan their course work carefully to meet their 
undergraduate educational objectives and to participate in the pro- 
gram; this will be particularly true for undergraduates whose majors 
require extensive sequential course work. 

Since the B.A./B.S.-M.B.A. program is based on careful course 
selection and program planning, an interested student should consult 
with a B.A./B.S.-M.B.A. program adviser during the first year. The 
program's objectives and requirements will be explained so that the 
student, in consultation with his or her baccalaureate degree program 
adviser, may plan the course work to meet both objectives. A student 
who wishes to participate in the B.A./B.S.-M.B.A. program must 
make formal application by March 31 in the second semester of the 
junior year. To be eligible for consideration, the student must have at 
least a 3.0 cumulative grade-point average on the last 45 hours of 
course work completed, with at least 96 hours of course work com- 
pleted by the beginning of the student's fourth year, and at least a score 
of 600 on the Graduate Management Admissions Test (GMAT). 

Multidiseiplinary Programs 

Two multidiseiplinary majors are offered in the College. They are 
Latin American and Caribbean Studies (see page 1 63) and Russian and 
East European Studies (see page 182). 

The following units do not have formal undergraduate degree 
programs; however, a major may be created through the Individual 
Plans of Studies program (IPS; see page 1 61 ) and faculty advisers from 
one of the units. The units assist students interested in their subjects 
and coordinate research efforts in these areas. 

AFRO-AMERICAN STUDIES AND RESEARCH PROGRAM 

The Afro- American Studies and Research Program coordinates cam- 
pus wide curricular, research, and programming activities that con- 
centrate on the population of African descent in North America, and 
to a lesser extent on the rest of the hemisphere. The program integrates 
multidiseiplinary curricular offerings from the social sciences and the 
humanities. Five core faculty work with forty faculty affiliates in 
departments in the Colleges of Liberal Arts and Sciences; Agriculture, 
Consumer, and Environmental Sciences; Communications; Educa- 
tion; Fine and Applied Arts; and Law. The Afro-American Studies 
office is located at 1201 W. Nevada, Urbana, IL 61801. 

ATMOSPHERIC SCIENCES 

Atmospheric Sciences involves the application of physics, chemistry 
and mathematics to the study of problems ranging from the very small 
scale (formation of small aerosols and cloud particles, reactions be- 
tween atmospheric gases) to regional scales (variations in local to 
regional weather, local air pollution) to global scales (changes in 
climate, changes in global chemistry and physics affecting the ozone 
layer). The broad spectrum of activities in the atmospheric sciences, 
including environmentally related studies, are represented by the 
education and research opportunities within the department. 

Undergraduate course offerings include topics such as severe and 
unusual weather, climate and global change, atmospheric physics and 
chemistry, satellite and radar meteorology, weather analysis and 
forecasting, and several multidiseiplinary courses intended for non- 
specialists including one which examines the role of interacting physi- 
cal, biological, and human processes of the global Earth System in 
shaping the past, present, and future environments in Illinois. For

CENTER FOR AFRICAN STUDIES 

The Center for African Studies is concerned with all aspects of African 
affairs and cultures. The center sponsors instruction in African lan- 
guages and cultures, offering a number of African studies courses 
each semester. Support for graduate students and arrangements for 
field experiences in Africa are also concerns of the center. The Center 
for African Studies is located at 21 International Studies Building, 910 
South Fifth Street, Champaign, IL 61820. 

LATINA/LATINO STUDIES PROGRAM 

The Latina/ Latino Studies Program provides support for interdisci- 
plinary teaching, outreach, and research in Latina /Latino Studies. 
The Program coordinates a range of course offerings in various 
disciplines. It also coordinates the activities that enhance curricular 
offerings through conferences, lectures, and colloquia that reach out 
to the campus at large and to the Illinois community. The Latina/ 
Latino Studies Program is located at 510 E. Chalmers, Champaign, IL, 
61820. 

WOMEN'S STUDIES PROGRAM 

The Women's Studies Program is an interdisciplinary academic unit 
designed to teach, coordinate, and develop women's studies courses 
and advise undergraduate students. With over 40 affiliated faculty 
members, the program also initiates activities and programs to main- 
tain and expand scholarship on women and gender issues. The 
Women's Studies Program is located at 911 South Sixth Street, 
Champaign, IL 61820. 

Teacher Education Curricula (Secondary) 

The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences and the College of Education 
have developed a coherent set of experiences on campus, in schools, 
and in communities that will prepare our students to become skilled, 
knowledgeable, and committed teachers. There are two ways that 
students may obtain teacher certification through the College of 
Liberal Arts and Sciences. 

Students preparing for teacher certification in biology, chemis- 
try, earth science, English, mathematics, physics, social studies, and 
speech: These students complete a teaching option offered through an 
LAS major and the Minor in Education. Upon completion of the option 
and the Minor in Education, students will earn a Bachelor of Arts or a 
Bachelor of Science degree in Liberal Arts and Sciences as well as 
teaching certification. Conferral of the degree of Bachelor of Science or 
Arts in Liberal Arts and Sciences prior to completion of the minor 
requires approval by petition to the LAS Student Affairs Office. 

Students preparing for teacher certification in any of five foreign 
languages — French, German, Latin, Russian, and Spanish — or in 
computer science: Students following these programs complete the 
requirements for the Bachelor of Arts in the Teaching of French (or 
German, etc.) Education courses and other courses required for teacher 
certification are integrated within each curriculum. 

More detailed information pertaining to specific course require- 
ments for each of the programs in both groups is provided by aca- 
demic advisers. Only through regular communication with the teacher 
education adviser may the student be assured of the appropriateness 
of his or her semester program. Students are advised that certification 
requirements may be altered at any time by the State Teacher Certifi- 
cation Board or by the legislature. In such cases, students may be 
compelled to satisfy the new requirements to qualify for the University's 
recommendation for certification. Also see Council on Teacher Educa- 
tion on page 46 for information pertinent to all teacher education and 
specific areas of teacher education listed in the LAS Programs of Study 
section of this catalog . 

TEACHING OF BIOLOGY, CHEMISTRY, EARTH SCIENCE, 
ENGLISH, MATHEMATICS, PHYSICS, SOCIAL STUDIES, AND 
SPEECH 

Students following any of the teaching options in the Sciences and 
Letters Curriculum must complete all the course requirements for that 
curriculum. When they select their major, they may also select a "Pre- 
Teaching" professional indicator, which reflects their intent to com- 
plete the requirements for teacher certification as part of their under- 
graduate program. 



Transfer into the Teaching Option within a major can be made only 
by students who have received approval to complete the Minor in 
Education. Approval for the Minor in Education is gained by success- 
ful application to the Department of Curriculum and Instruction in the 
College of Education, upon recommendation by the subject area 
committees of the Council on Teacher Education. 

Two prerequisite courses must be completed before transfer to the 
Teaching Option in any major: EDPSY 211; and EPS 201 . Additionally, 
each major stipulates other prerequisite courses that must be com- 
pleted before admission to the Teaching Option. Interested students 
should see the academic advisers in the major for information on 
prerequisite courses. 

Some students will be able to complete all the prerequisite courses 
for transfer into the Teaching Option of their major by the spring of 
their sophomore year; those students may be able to complete the 
requirements for the Bachelor's degree in LAS, the Minor in Education 
and all other requirements for teacher certification in four years. 

Students who establish eligibility to transfer into the teaching 
option of their major in the spring of their junior year will need five 
years to satisfy the requirements for teacher certification. Those stu- 
dents, however, may be able to convert up to 15 hours of course credit 
in excess of the minimum required for the Liberal Arts and Sciences 
Bachelor's degree into graduate credit. 

GENERAL EDUCATION REQUIREMENTS 

The state of Illinois has mandated completion of certain general 
education requirements for all students applying for certification on 
or after July 1, 1992. These requirements are reflected in the general 
education categories listed below. Students should contact their ad- 
visers to be sure of degree and certification requirements in their 
particular areas. 

Students in LAS undergraduate programs leading to secondary 
certification will be expected to complete the following distribution. 
Courses used to meet the requirements must be from the Council on 
Teacher Education-approved course list. NOTE: The Council on 
Teacher Education-approved list is more restrictive than the LAS 
College course lists for general education. 

The distribution of these requirements is as follows: 

Communication: RHET 105 or 108, and SPCOM 101 or a speech 
performance elective, and one course approved by the university as 
satisfying the Composition II requirement. Alternatively, students 
may complete SPCOM 111 and 112, and one course satisfying the 
Composition II requirement. NOTE: Some departments specify par- 
ticular courses within their major to satisfy the Composition II re- 
quirement. 

Foreign Language. Students are expected to obtain knowledge of a 
foreign language equivalent to the completion of the fourth semester 
of college study in a language. The requirements can be satisfied in the 
same manner as the language requirement for the Sciences and Letters 
Curriculum. A complete list of ways to satisfy this requirement is on 
page 129. 

American or English Literature. One course. 

American History. One course. 

American Government. One course. 

One additional course chosen from literature and the arts, historical 
and philosophical perspectives, or social perspectives. 

Non- Western Culture, One course. 

Biological Science, One course. 

Physical Science, One course. 

One additional course in biological or physical science. One of the 
three courses in biological and /or physical science must have a 
laboratory. A minimum of 9 semester hours of science is required. 

Mathematics. One course applicable to the campus Quantitative 
Reasoning requirement. 

PSYCH 100 or equivalent. 

Health and Physical Development. Two hours. 

In addition, to satisfy state certification requirements a student 
must show on his or her transcript at least 15 hours of humanities 
courses. By the state definition, humanities courses are those in 
American history, English, history, literature, foreign language (in- 



COLLEGE OF LIBERAL ARTS AND SCIENCES

eluding first- and second-year language courses for the foreign lan- 
guage requirement), art, music, theater, linguistics and philosophy. 
While most students in LAS teacher education programs will auto- 
matically have at least 15 hours of humanities under the state's 
definition, students should review their programs to ensure they do 
so. Any courses used for other requirements (foreign language, distri- 
bution requirements above, teaching major, teaching minors, etc.) 
may be counted in the 15 hours. 

TEACHING OF COMPUTER SCIENCE AND ALL FOREIGN 
LANGUAGES 

This section contains a description of the requirements for programs 
leading to the bachelor's degree in teacher education. More detailed 
information pertaining to specific course requirements for each area of 
specialization is provided by faculty advisers. It is essential that the 
student fulfill the specific course requirements of his or her program 
in order to be eligible for the bachelor's degree in teacher education. 
Only through regular communication with the teacher education 
adviser may the student be assured of the appropriateness of his or her 
semester program. Students are advised that certification require- 
ments may be altered at any time by the State Teacher Certification 
Board or by the legislature. In such cases, students may be compelled 
to satisfy the new requirements to qualify for the University's recom- 
mendation for certification. Also see Council on Teacher Education on 
page 46 for information pertinent to all teacher education curricula. 
General education requirements of the College of Liberal Arts and 
Sciences must be fulfilled by students pursuing teacher education 
curricula in that college (see General Education requirements Listed 
above). If the requirements of the teaching major satisfy the general 
education requirements in an area, they will be noted in the curricu- 
lum statement. For more information, consult the certification officer 
(130 Education Building). 

Transfer Between Programs 

Students should be advised that they may have to satisfy specific 
grade-point average requirements for transfer into most specialized 
curricula and some majors. Contact an adviser or the LAS Student 
Affairs Office (270 Lincoln Hall) for specific information. 

Honors Programs 



DEAN'S LIST 

Each semester, students are recognized by the college for placement 
on the Dean's List. Those students are eligible who meet the following 
criteria and are in the top 20 percent of their classes. To be eligible for 
Dean's List recognition, you must have completed at least 14 hours of 
course work, excluding military and religious foundation courses and 
graduate-level courses taken for unit credit. Of these 14 hours, at least 
12 hours must be earned in courses taken for traditional letter grades, 
which excludes courses graded credit/no credit, satisfactory/unsat- 
isfactory, and test-based credit, which is graded pass/fail. Course 
work completed through study abroad may be included in determin- 
ing Dean's List eligibility, subject to these same limitations. Students 
with work graded excused or deferred are not considered for the 
Dean's List until grades have been submitted for that work. These 
students should notify the honors dean when such work has been 
completed if they expect to be placed on the Dean's List. 

JAMES SCHOLAR PROGRAM 

The official honors program in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences 
is called the Edmund J. James Scholar Program. This program allows 
students with exceptional ability to pursue rigorous academic courses 
of study and provides the opportunity for those students to meet with 
faculty members who are particularly interested in honors programs. 
There are honors advisers available in the respective departments and 
an honors dean in the college office. James Scholars register in some 
special honors courses, sections, seminars, and colloquia; they ar- 
range individualized honors credit learning agreements for specific 
courses. James Scholars have open access to the University Library 
stacks (ordinarily open only to graduate students and the faculty); 
such access to library stacks is particularly helpful for students in- 
volved in independent study and /or undergraduate research projects. 
James Scholars also have their program requests processed early to 
minimize conflicts in scheduling honors courses. 

Any qualified LAS student may become a James Scholar Nominee. 



Entering freshmen who are in the top 15 percent of the admitted class 
are invited immediately into the program as James Scholar Nominees. 
In order to remain in the program as James Scholar Nominees, 
students must maintain a cumulative grade-point average of 3.5 and 
must complete two honors courses during the academic year. Official 
certification of James Scholar standing on the University transcript is 
made at the end of the academic year (upon completion of these 
requirements). 

Further information about the James Scholar Program is available 
from the LAS Student Affairs Office, 270 Lincoln Hall. 

ROGERS MERIT SCHOLAR PROGRAM 

The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences has established the Robert W . 
Rogers Merit Scholarship program for highly qualified freshmen. A 
freshman chosen as a Robert W. Rogers Scholar enrolls in any curricu- 
lum in the college and is awarded $1,000 for the year; the award may 
be renewed for the sophomore year if the student maintains at least a 
3.5 grade-point average and continues in the college. Admitted fresh- 
men with the highest qualifications are invited to apply. The selection 
of a Rogers Scholar is made by a faculty committee and based on 
exceptional scholastic achievement, high performance on either the 
ACT or SAT examination, and evidence of leadership in the school or 
community. No more than twelve new awards are made each year. 
Rogers Scholars participate in an extended orientation with activities 
drawing on some of the University's academic and cultural resources. 

COHN SCHOLARS HONORS PROGRAM 

The Cohn Scholars Program provides intellectual and financial sup- 
port and special academic opportunities for a small group of highly 
qualified freshmen majoring in the humanities. Each Cohn Scholar 
participates in a yearlong independent study course in his or her field 
of interest (or in a closely related field) with a faculty mentor from one 
of the humanities disciplines. The independent study course offers 
each student the opportunity to interact with a faculty member on an 
individual basis through intensive study in a selected subject. 

Cohn Scholars also enroll in a two-semester course sequence in 
western civilization offered by the Department of History or the 
Program in Comparative Literature, with special discussion sections. 
Periodic seminars feature informal discussions among students and 
invited faculty members on selected topics. Cohn Scholars participate 
in special campus activities designed to acquaint them with some of 
the University's many academic and cultural resources. 

Applications to the program are invited in early spring from 
highly qualified high school students who have been admitted for the 
following year to one of the humanities departments or programs in 
the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. Potential students are se- 
lected by a faculty committee on the basis of an application, high 
school class rank, and performance in a competitive entrance exami- 
nation (ACT or SAT). Inquiries should be addressed to the Cohn 
Scholars Program, College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, 294 Lincoln 
Hall, Urbana, IL 61801. 

HONORS AT GRADUATION 

College honors at graduation are awarded on the basis of academic 
excellence and satisfaction of one of the following: (1) successful 
completion of 25 hours of honors courses (including work taken on 
honors credit learning agreements); (2) successful completion of 35 
hours of advanced hours course work; or (3) earning departmental 
distinction. Provided that one of the requirements above is satisfied, 
the award of college honors is made according to the following ranges: 
cum laude, if the college grade-point average places a student in the 
top 12 percent of the graduating class but not in the top 7 percent; 
magna cum laude, if the college grade-point average places a student 
in the top 7 percent of the graduating class but not in the top 3 percent; 
and summa cum laude, if the college grade-point average places a 
student in the top 3 percent of the graduating class. 

DEPARTMENTAL DISTINCTION 

Students who have shown exceptional competence in one or more 
areas of study may earn distinction in their major(s) or curricula. 
Criteria for awarding distinction are established by the departments. 
Students interested in working for distinction should consult their 
honors adviser early in the junior year. Specific information about 
requirements is available from the departmental and curriculum 
advisers. Generally, in addition to meeting the scholastic require- 
ments and the minimum requirements for a major, a student gradu- 
ating with departmental distinction must satisfy at least one of the 



UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAMS

ANTHROPOLOGY 

The Anthropology major and minor are administered by the Depart- 
ment of Anthropology. Anthropology, which views human biology, 
behavior and society (both past and present) in a cross-cultural 
perspective, combines scientific and humanistic interests in a modern 
social sciences framework. It includes biological anthropology (bio- 
logical diversity and evolutionary history of human and nonhuman 
primates), archaeology (human prehistory and the organization and 
growth of technology), sociocultural anthropology (comparative study 
of social structures and institutions from hunter-gatherer settings to 
urban settings), and linguistic anthropology (comparative study of 
languages and communication). Although the student should strive 
for a topical and geographical balance, an undergraduate may special- 
ize in one of these four branches and may also study some world 
cultural area intensively through an area studies program. Anthropol- 
ogy is an appropriate major for those seeking a general liberal educa- 
tion; for those preparing for professional study and careers in law, 
medicine, or commerce; and for those planning further graduate 
study in anthropology. Professional anthropologists work as research 
scientists and teachers in museums, universities, and archaeological 
surveys; as staff members in government agencies, social service 
programs, and business firms in which international understanding 
of human and social concerns is important; or as independent consult- 
ants to such agencies, programs and firms.

ART HISTORY 

Like the other humanities, the history of art as an undergraduate 
major offers an enrichment of and a preparation for life, rather than 
training for a specific occupation. The student who goes on to gradu- 
ate work in the field can look forward to becoming a teacher of the 
subject, to membership on the staff of a museum, or to employment in 
a commercial art gallery. 

Working in consultation with the undergraduate adviser for art 
history in the School of Art and Design, each student will design a 
program of study that satisfies the requirements listed below. Stu- 
dents who wish to take a considerable number of studio courses as 
part of their major should enroll in the history of art option offered by 
the School of Art and Design within the College of Fine and Applied 
Arts.

200- and 300-level courses in Art History including one 3 hour 

course in each of the following areas: 1 

Ancient and medieval art 

Renaissance, Baroque, and Rococo art 

Late eighteenth-, nineteenth-, and twentieth-century art 

African, Asian, Oceanic, and pre-Columbian art 
200- and 300-level courses in supporting areas chosen with 
the approval of the adviser. Although the program in art 
history allows considerable latitude in the selection of such 
courses, they should be chosen with the goal of enhancing the 
student's understanding of the cultural context within which 
works of art and architecture have been created. Recent 
practice suggests that supporting courses will most 
commonly be drawn from such fields as anthropology, 
classics, history, literature, music and dance history, 
philosophy, psychology, and religious studies. 



Twelve hours advanced level (300 and approved 200) courses in the 
major must be taken on this campus. 

All foreign language requirements must be satisfied. French or Ger- 
man is strongly recommended for fulfilling the foreign language 
requirement; however, another language may be used with the ap- 
proval of the adviser as the needs of the student's program dictate. A 
student who has decided to make the history of Oriental art his or her 
major study area in undergraduate and graduate work would be well 
advised to satisfy the foreign language requirement with Chinese or 
Japanese rather than with a European language. 

A Major Plan of Study Form must be completed and submitted to the 
LAS Student Affairs Office before the end of the fifth semester (60-75 
hours). Please see your adviser. 



1. Courses in the history of architecture, excluding ARCH 210, may be used with the 
approval of the adviser for as many as 12 hours of credit in meeting the 24 hour 
requirement. 

ASTRONOMY 

The major in astronomy, administered by the Department of As- 
tronomy, is based upon both a broad and an in-depth exploration into 
astronomy and allied disciplines, and is an excellent way to gain a 
general science education. It may be chosen by students who wish to 
have an astronomy research career or an astronomy background for 
use in related fields, such as working in national laboratories, obser- 
vatories, planetariums, NASA, aerospace industry, many computer- 
related fields, journalism or science writing to name a few. Astronomy 
courses can also be customized to satisfy a secondary field for the 
undergraduate curriculum in General Engineering. 

Astronomy students are also encouraged to minor in a second field 
such as chemistry, computer science, geology, or mathematics. Spe- 
cific programs of study in other areas such as biology, economics, 
English, history, or journalism, for individual students can be de- 
signed and periodically updated through mutual discussions be- 
tween the students and their academic advisers. All students, espe- 
cially those interested in pursuing astronomy research as a career, 
should take part in independent study or research projects with 
faculty members as part of the astronomy major curriculum.

CHEMICAL ENGINEERING 



MAJOR IN SPECIALIZED CURRICULUM IN CHEMICAL 
ENGINEERING 

The chemical engineering curriculum is arranged in a flexible manner 
to permit students to use their elective hours and to substitute courses 
in order to arrange programs incorporating various specific areas of 
chemical engineering or interdisciplinary areas. For example, se- 
quences can be set up in conjunction with the student's adviser to 
emphasize environmental engineering, bioengineering, computer 
science, or one of many other options. It will be advantageous to the 
student to plan course sequences with an adviser as early in the 
student's academic career as possible. 

Students entering without adequate preparation in mathematics 
and chemistry may find it difficult to complete the chemical engineer- 
ing curriculum in four years. A typical program, including all re- 
quired courses and electives, is shown below. Individual students 
may vary the order in which the various courses are taken to suit their 
individual needs. However, care must be exercised in scheduling to 
ensure that necessary course prerequisites are met. 

Students in the curriculum of chemical engineering must maintain 
a 2.5 general average, excluding military training in order to be 
accepted by the department as juniors and seniors. 

For information regarding the cooperative education program in 
the School of Chemical Sciences, see the Chemistry major in the 
Science and Letters Curriculum on page 142. 

Degree title: Bachelor of Science in Chemical Engineering 

General education: All campus general education requirements must 
be satisfied. 

Minimum hours required for graduation: 129 hours including 16

CHEMISTRY 



Students may pursue chemistry by following either the specialized 
curriculum in chemistry (leading to the bachelor of science in chem- 
istry), or one of two options in the Sciences and Letters Curriculum 
(leading to the bachelor of science in liberal arts and sciences). The 
department also sponsors a minor in chemistry and a teacher educa- 
tion minor in chemistry These programs of study are administered by 
the Department of Chemistry. 

The chemistry option in the Sciences and Letters Curriculum is 
used by some students planning chemistry careers, but it is more often 
chosen by students wishing to obtain chemistry backgrounds for use 
in related fields. In contrast, the specialized curriculum in chemistry 
is a rigorous, specialized program suitable for those planning careers 
in chemistry. It meets standards prescribed by the American Chemical 
Society. 

Cooperative Education Program: Students accepted into the School of 
Chemical Sciences Cooperative Education Program spend alternate 
periods of attendance at the University with periods of employment
